Many of us our rather busy, and some of us work for free, so it
sometimes take a while for us to get back to you.

I understand the problem; the point is that it is in fact a bug in
your code.  The standard simply prevents us from doing what you would
like done here.  You must say:

typedef const struct NonConstTest { int x; } Test, *pTest;

to do what you want.
