WARNING: long, detailed message. If you don't care about Win32, move on.

Other annoying Windows issues specific to glib:

1. GOption fails hard for filenames which are in a language different
than your Windows. E.g. Chinese or Russian filenames on English
Windows. The arguments passed to main() contain "?" in place of the
Chinese / Russian characters and that's just not enough information to
correctly identify the file. More detail in the bug:

A combination of GetCommandLineW and CommandLineToArgvW can get you the arguments as wchar_t strings which could then be converted to utf8. Is this just something that glib needs to provide a convenience function for? g_win32_get_utf8_argv() maybe?
