wow. I guess http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=74620 makes it
clear it is not us.

Thanks for finding out. Well GTK+ was always like that, and especially
in Windows it is more untested. The problem is not if GTK was better
when Gajim started, but if there is a real alternative open source
solution for a stable and extensively tested GUI. And there isn't,
because open source does not give enough money back for such a
mechanism to exist.

GTK in Linux "just works" so it's acceptable allover as such.

if you are a python fan, then the best GUI for Windows is wxPython and
you can have a look at IronPython speaking to MS SWF (.NET).
