Which warnings do you get on which platform?

The casts to size_t where introduced by myself some days ago.
Previously they where casted to long.

The TYPE_FIELD_TYPE macro returns a pointer to a struct type.
Treating this as (unsigned) long is pretty correct on *nix style
systems but not on windows. On 64bit windows a long is still 4 bytes
long, so the downcasted value is simply wrong.
