Hi guys.  I've committed revision 351 to Rambetter-temp-fixes branch
which addresses this issue.  I used willi's patch to help me  narrow
down which file the bug might be in (gtkmisc.cpp), then I basically
put his patch aside and independently studied the problem, did online
research, and tested (which took me several hours).  In the end, I
came up with a patch that is very similar to willi's (in fact I
borrowed his idea for a function like GetTypeForIndex() in class
CFileType).  The good news is that willi and I came up with a similar
approach to solving this problem, so the fix is probably a good one.
Because I also did thorough testing and [probably] a bit more reading
into the matter, my patch has a few things that are different, but I
feel that my patch is pretty correct.

We will merge this patch into trunk when trunk is fixed with respect
to the libraries [maybe in a week or so].

For me, Radiant 1.6 is now usable on Windows, for the first time.  I
was able to create and compile a map for Urban Terror on Windows using
Radiant 1.6.  However, I did use the Rambetter-temp-fixes branch.

If you want to give it a whirl, I'd suggest following this tutorial on
compiling Radiant for Windows:
http://daffy.nerius.com/radiant-compile-win/ , except you'd use the
SVN repository https://zerowing.idsoftware.com/svn/radiant/GtkRadiant/branches/Rambetter-temp-fixes
instead of https://zerowing.idsoftware.com/svn/radiant/GtkRadiant/trunk
