I believe this may be related to us trying to maintain backwards
compatibility with vanilla Win95. TVS_SINGLEEXPAND is only defined in
the MinGW headers (and presumably the MSVC headers as well) when
targetting IE4.0 and greater. Still looking into it, but someone else
may have more insight into this. It can be found in /mingw/commctrl.h.
