Can't build Inkscape on Windows

Bug Description

 I've checked out code from latest trunk (r12407) .
 I'm not able to compile it on Windows (OS : Win7, Building as it is written in Wiki "Compiling Inkscape on Windows"). Error messages attached.

 Problem is in seltrans-handles.h line 36... instead of "uint" it should be "guint".

That particular line of code was added in r12401:

@Martin - any comments on the proposed fix for Windows builds?

It's a sensible fix, so I've put it in. Please report back if it works now on Windows.

Bug and fix confirmed on Windows XP. Replacing uint with guint fixes the issue and Inkscape compiles as expected.

@Martin - AFAICT rev. 12408 (if you refer to that latest commit of yours) seems to contain unrelated changes - safe to revert for now, and instead commit the actual fix?

How embarrassing, r12409 to fix that.
