Building 0.23.2 for windows fails for me with this error message:

stress-threads-qt4.cpp: In member function 'virtual void CrazyThread::run()':
stress-threads-qt4.cpp:99:49: error: invalid static_cast from type
'Qt::HANDLE {aka void*}' to type 'uint {aka unsigned int}'
     qsrand(static_cast< uint >(currentThreadId()));

According to documentation, 'The handle returned by this function
[currentThreadId] is used for internal purposes and should not be used
in any application code.'  [1]

It fails for Windows because 'On Windows, the returned value is a
pseudo-handle for the current thread. It can't be used for numerical
comparison. i.e., this function returns the DWORD (Windows-Thread ID)
returned by the Win32 function getCurrentThreadId(), not the HANDLE
(Windows-Thread HANDLE) returned by the Win32 function
getCurrentThread().' [1]

Has anyone a good idea how to fix this code?
