However, it does indeed look like the win32 implementation was removed:

You might ask about that in the bug report:

Wow - those are two loooong threads. I don't mind adding to the bug report Murray - but to be honest, it looks like people are already getting jaded after 4 year's worth of debate there :-(

Basically... somebody has removed some glib functions without thinking about the knock-on effect it would have for glibmm. In Win32 they were essentially 'placeholders' but they were still needed, if only to ensure that glibmm would compile. And I guess there could be ramifications too for anyone writing a cross-platform app.

So what needs to happen here? Do the placeholder functions need to get put back? Or does somebody need to flag this up to the glibmm team so they can accommodate the change at their end? Thanks.
