thanks a lot for the comprehensive description. I am quite busy right
now, but I will look into it. This will entail me installing Allegro
on my win xp office machine, and as I am quite busy right now, it
might take a few days (possibly until the weekend) until I get round
to it. Sorry about that.
I have a hunch that it is connected to the g_thread_supported func, so
my first shot would be to recompile the dll on windows with the new
functions (since I do not have windows on my development box, I never
did that). I am not a really a windows person, so I don't even know
which tools to use, but we'll see ...
I also remember reading that there was some issue with gdk/gtk and
threading on windows in general, and that there was something special
to take care of -- but since I was solely on linux and writing a
thesis, I had other things on my mind.
I'll get back to you in a few days.
Btw, does it work w/o threading?
