Thanks for the feedback.

How exactly did you run gnucash ?

I think the whole windows build system is set up to create a Windows installer 
for the gnucash package and run gnucash after this installer has run.

On the other hand, if simply running the glib-compile-schemas on the end 
result of the build script helps you run it without invoking the Windows 
installer, that's a worthwile bonus.

I *thought* we did run this while building, but a quick scan of the build 
scripts suggest it's only run while bundling gnucash. I wonder why that is. 
Perhaps John remembers.
