Hi Frank, 

  Yes, i'm peregrine. That email address should work but i've not heard anything yet. Could you try one thing for me - if 
glib2 will compile under cygwin, can you try the cvs version of mu-conference. I know of some instability issues in the 
v0.5.x series, and this should have fixed them. I'm just unable to get cygwin running at the moment due to the download
