It's not like I was trying to be safe.. Just trying to get to compile
period :-)

That I know! But it doesn't work. The CW-8 series has serious problems
with non-trivial structure initializers. The only reliable "solutions"
that escapes the compile errors, and sometimes compiler death, is to do
manual field assignment, or a ctor.

So I'm not sure what to do in this case.. As the above is not the only
solution I tried.

I would hope not but since the support for OSX changed dramatically
between the two it's a possibility. Although it's more likely something
extra we need to do in the cw-9 series.
