I believe this may be the problem, assuming we're using the "official" 
GTK Windows binaries:

 From http://www.gtk.org/download-windows.html

    It is possible to use these packages also with Microsoft's compiler.
    However, the DLLs here use the msvcrt.dll run-time library. This
    means that also applications that use the DLLs should preferrably
    use the msvcrt.dll run-time. Specifically, this means that you
    should not use newer versions of the Microsoft compiler than Visual
    C++ 6 without knowing exactly what you are doing.

Which makes me believe that we should build our own binaries if we want 
to use Visual Studio > 6.0 (e.g. 2008). MSVCR90.dll may not be 
msvcrt.dll but still I sense a connection, or at least a potential other
