Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Using glib 2.14.6-2 with gtk+ 2.12.8 on 1.0.0?(win32)

The released version uses 2.14.6-2 for GTK2 and 2.14.5 for GTK1 due to some problem that I can't recall at the moment.  (It had something to do with libgmodule, and I think this was the bug reported for it, although I can't verify it right now because the wireshark website is not responding: http://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=2357.)
Anyway, I'm not seeing the missing symbol problem.  Probably an obvious question, but did you run a distclean first before trying to build it?  Here's my build configuration from the Help->About window:

Subject: [Wireshark-dev] Using glib 2.14.6-2 with gtk+ 2.12.8 on  1.0.0?(win32)


I have tried compiling 1.0.0 on a offline windows machine with glib
2.14.6-2 and gtk+ 2.12.8, as used in Makefile.nmake.  When running the
installed binary I get an error message about a missing symbol
g_assertion_message, and wireshark does not start.  Upgrading to glib
2.16.1 solves this problem.

Am I the only one getting this error with 1.0.0?
Which glib is used in the released version?
