I'm sorry, my message may have been confusing. I only have Windows XP SP3. The 
original poster reported the problem on Windows 7, and I neglected to mention 
my Windows version in my reply.

Today I installed the 2.4.10 version that got built last night, but 
unfortunately it still crashes with the same error.

I also tried on another Windows XP installation, figuring that my test VM got 
corrupted somehow, but I get exactly the same results there.

I tried removing the .gtkrc, as at least for 2.4.9, it worked (even with the 
Nimbus theme), but I can't get 2.4.10 to run. 

It's very unlikely I can continue to debug this shortly, so as far as I'm 
concerned, you can retag now. The crash caused by the installation issue is 
fixed at least, what remains it to figure out why the app crashes on libgdk-
