I had a issue implementing XDND (drag-n-drop) protocol (worked on 32-bit,
failed on 64-bit). You mentioned I used the wrong data types, and should
have used the ctypes unit instead.

I never paid that much attention to the converted header units uses clause
included with FPC. I was rather referring to my own converted units, or my
units that need to work with C data structures. I used to use Object Pascal
types in such cases, but now use the C alias types defined in ctypes.
