glib and GTK+ “fun”

This evening I had quite some “fun” testing a weird behaviour that’s occurring with pretty much all of my GTK+ applications that use glib’s function g_file_get_contents() when compiled against glib 2.28.0 but run against glib 2.52.0. I don’t think it’s a glib issue per se as I suspect that the runtime might be playing a role here.
I’ll spare further details as these could easily drive a person insane, but long story short I will have to recompile all of my GTK+ applications against GTK+ 2.24.31 and use the MSYS2 gcc toolchain moving forward.
In practical terms this means I will have to find a new IDE that allows proper application debugging. That shouldn’t be too hard though 🙂
