Dear all pidgin users, 
yesterday I have updated to Pidgin 2.6.6 on Windows XP SP3 from version 2.5,
and I have encountered 2 problems with Pidgin:
1) (solved with Google) when starting Pidgin an error of file missing
(iconv.dll) appear, I have fixed it 
2) Now Pidgin have the default theme and not the GTK theme as before of
updating it

I have no fixed the second problem, I have tried to search without finding
The GTK theme is well configured, if I run the GTK theme selector:
 i uses the correct theme:
 <_img src="gtk.png" border="0" />
 but when I start Pidgin it uses the default theme: 
 before to update to version 2.6 all worked fine. 
 Somebody could help me to solve this problem (not very important)?
 Since I have installed Gimp, is it possible that it have installed another 
GTK version and that now Pidgin use this new version?
 It exists a way to know  the path of DLL loaded by Pidgin? In this way I
could see what version of GTK is loaded by Pidgin.
