The switch to GtkHtml seems to cause the Windows build to crash on any attempt
to open a report. Reports that were still open when GnuCash was closed just
before the update seem to cause this as well.
I originally created this problem by having the windows build script use
GtkHtml instead of Webkit. I did this to further

But obviously in the current state, the Windows build is worse off with
GtkHtml than with Webkit.
How do I proceed best from here ? I'm not very good at debugging on Windows (I
don't have a build environment on Windows), so I doubt I can manage to debug
I can revert my change, and set Webkit back as the html renderer. At least
that will eliminate the crash.
But according to bug #591177, the 2.4 release on windows should be using
GtkHtml. So simply reverting to Webkit is only pushing the problem ahead of us
in the future.
