ShowOn missing from backends_gtk ?

If I start interactive2.py, it complains that ShowOn can't

You are using an out-of-date interactive2.py. Matplotlib recently
changed (improved!) the way it sets the interactive flags. You have
the new matplotlib module and the old interactive2.py code. Grab
the latest *.tar.gz or *.zip and use examples/interactive2.py from
that code.

Hi again,
I have given up on installing matplotlib on linux for now, i have to
upgrade my mandrake install anyway, then I will try again. Now I have an
issue with installing matplotlib with gtk on my windows 2000 partition:

I followed the instructions on the web page to the letter:
  installed python23
        installed pygtk2.0
   installed gtk in C:\GTK
  added C:\GTK\lib and C:\GTK\include to the path
  installed matplotlib

For a test i ran:
  import pygtk
  pygtk.require('2.0')
  import gtk

At this point i get a system error telling me that the dynamic link
library libglib-2.0-0.dll could not be found on my path. This makes sense
since there IS no file libglib-2.0-0.dll in the GTK install, only a file
called libglib-2.0.dll.a

What is going on? What have I done wrong?
Any help would be appreciated greatly!
