Hi Dario,

Hi
I'm debugging sshdump on windows and I found an unexpected behavior with glib logging functions.

g_error: seems to work. A popup appears and program stops
g_warning: nothing, with or without G_MESSAGES_DEBUG=all
g_debug: same as above
g_print: nothing printed

I recall something about those functions not working on windows, but I can't find a pointer in the ML archives. Is is a known bug on glib? Or something missing on my side?

You can find some analysis done by Bill a few years ago explaining why it is a mess: https://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=6695#c2

Cheers,
Pascal.
