It's a situation where you have several incompatible DLLs of the same
name that fight each other, and give you hell.

We already advise to prefer ezwinports to GTK ports (see README.W32).  I
actually don't understand why you tried to install them, and why you
think the GTK ports are newer: none of the libraries they distribute
have newer versions than what you have on ezwinports.

Send email to address@hidden, where NNNN is the bug
number.  I did that for this bug.

Thanks.
