[Pan-users] Helper program bug with latest gtk (windows)

User-agent: Pan/0.132 (Waxed in Black)


With the latest version of gtk+ for windows (2.12.10) installed, clicking 
on a url or mail address in pan fails to open my web browser or email 
program - the following error is displayed in the event pane:

failed to execute helper program (invalid argument)

If I revert to gtk 2.10.14 the error does not occur and helper programs 
are launched normally.

I don't know if this is a by-design change in gtk 2.12 that pan does not 
support, a bug in gtk, or a bug in pan. Any of those scenarios could 
explain the error message. Just posting here in the hope it will help 
anyone else encountering the problem.

You can get the current and older builds of gtk for windows from here:
