Ah yes. That about the only problem left with the way
Gimp (and the PyGTK AIO installer) is packaged for
windows that I'm aware of. Thanks for reminding me!

Care to disclose the name of that certain antivirus?
We've been looking for possible sources of this for ages
over @PyGTK (the Gramps devs even wrote a sanity checking
script to detect this and other weird situations).

It is strange that with both SafeDllSearchMode enabled
and disabled, %WINDIR%\system32 takes precedent over the
directory from which the application loaded. Haven't yet
found out why unfortunatly...
