In this particular case the bug reported by Jiri is a bug in the mingw64
version of gettimeofday. There is a specification error, because
someone, perhaps some function from the C library, displays the message:

   warning: Invalid parameter passed to C runtime function.

So, it is not a compatibility issue, and just checking the return code
wouldn't fix the bug.

I think it is not a good idea to change the code because of a buggy
compiler and/or buggy implementation of the standard library.
