oops - I forgot to paste in the changed lines - here they are:

** MinGW headers do not declare those
static const GUID CATID_SafeForInitializing = { 0x7DD95802, 0x9882, 
0x11CF, {0x9F, 0xA9, 0x00, 0xAA, 0x00, 0x6C, 0x42, 0xC4}};
/*extern const CATID CATID_SafeForInitializing; //commented out for 
bugfixing */
static const GUID CATID_SafeForScripting = { 0x7DD95801, 0x9882, 0x11CF, 
{0x9F, 0xA9, 0x00, 0xAA, 0x00, 0x6C, 0x42, 0xC4}};
/*extern const CATID CATID_SafeForScripting; //commented out for 
bugfixing */
