Hi, thanks for reporting this!  Could you please tell us more about how
you are building Tor? Also what release are you building?  We typically
build Tor on Windows using MinGW, not MSVC, so we might not notice for a
while if something is broken on MSVC.

Also I'm not finding any obvious place we define DEBUG_SMARTLIST on
master.  What are you seeing that defines it?

Would you be willing to open a bug report about this on trac.torproject.org?
