Patches for GLib, Atk, GTK+ and libglade are available here:

Instructions for patching and building are here:

Note that all these patches are also in Bugzilla.  As I'm also not a
windows expert, so they are likely to be imperfect.  They work for me,
but if a more knowledgable cygwin/windows user could have a look over
them, that would be great.

I've not yet got these ported to GTK+ 2.4, since I've not got GLib to
pass the testsuite yet (child-test and unicode conversion fail).

I hope these are useful!
