pidgin search fails

I shut down pidgin
backed up original  libgdk-win32-2.0-0.dll      at C:\Program Files\Common 
Files\GTK\2.0\bin
copied          libgdk-win32-2.0-0.dll                  into  C:\Program 
Files\Common Files\GTK\2.0\bin

  from 
http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/gtk+/2.12/gtk+-2.12.6.zip 

The dll file, from zip, has Create date 1/29, size 625kb.

Same error.  Accepts one character; then will timeout and return to same 
screen.

Is a reboot required?

Bob,

Go to the link that Phil gave us (http://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/4966) 
and follow the instructions in this comment (#4) (
http://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/4966#comment:4).

Just download the zip.  Extract libgdk-win32-2.0-0.dll and put it in your 
%path%\GTK\bin\ folder.  Replacing the one currently in there.

OK, I need help here.  I am not a pidgin developer; I don't know my way 
around.  Can someone tell me what file to extract from what zip, so that 
the search function works? 

Thanks.

This is an issue with GTK.  There is a file you can replace in the GTK lib 
to fix this issue.  Search trac for it, unless someone else gives you the 
link, let me know if you need more.

ok - next problem - pidgin  2.5.1 - I type a name, to allow pidgin to look 
up the first match, as I have always done in the past; but only the first 
character shows up in the search buffer and no useful name is found.  What 
am I doing wrong?  Same problem when ctrl-F for a find.

The way to disable sounds is with the "Mute Sounds" checkbox in
Tools->Preferences->Sounds.

If that is already checked, are you sure that these sounds are
actually coming from Pidgin?
