Subject RE: release configurations (8d, 8s, 12d, 12s) fail to compile on Windows, MSVC 7.1

Martin, what about this issue?

I tried to rebuild all configurations and found that release are still
Maybe, we should open a jira issue to not forget about the problem?

Or does this issue appear on my side only?

I suspect that's what we'll have to do. I.e., hardcode this into our
<cstdio> header for Windows/MSVC.

Let me look into it. Strangely, I don't see it in our nightly builds.
