I really should have thought of this earlier, but I'll mention it 
anyways, I'm not afraid of making a fool of myself :-)

I guess if that bug is reproducible in the Linux version of Pidgin too, 
what I'm suggesting with a Linux VM should be even easier - no need to 
cross-compile anything, I can debug a Linux build.

I guess the intellectual challenge of getting it building on Windows was 
blinding me to the obvious :-)
