Encoding bug in Windows version (ICQ)

I've just installed the latest build for Windows (2.4.0) and now I'm 
unable to receive any ICQ messages.
I've got the following in my debug window:

(21:45:56) oscar: incomingim_ch1: unknown TLV 0x0013 (len 1)
(21:45:56) oscar: Received IM from 334576979 with 1 parts
(21:45:56) oscar: Parsing IM part, charset=0x0002, charsubset=0x0000, 
(21:45:56) oscar: Conversion from UCS-2BE failed: Conversion from 
character set 'UCS-2BE' to 'UTF-8' is not supported.
(21:45:56) oscar: String is not valid UTF-8.

Also see attached snapshot of my conversation window.
After a bit of digging i figured out that the new release has been 
shipped with a bogus glib library. After switching to GTK 2.12.1 
everything turned out good. Actually it was enough to replace just 
libglib-2.0.0.dll file with the one from GTK 2.12.1 to fix the issue.

I suppose i'm not the only one who might've been affected by that.
