Windows XP dbghelp.dll error (gui-gtk client)

I am running freeciv with Windows XP Home (Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600) in a VirtualBox. ok - Windows XP may not be supported anymore, but it still works well. There is a little anoying error message when starting the game. The Messagebox has the tittle "freeciv-server.exe - Entry point not found" and the content "The procedure entry point EnumDirTree could not be located in the dynamic link library dbghelp.dll."

I get this message with Freeciv "2.6.0-beta2, gui-gtk-3.0 client" and with "2.5.10, gui-gtk-2.0 client". The message appears two times. First when starting freeciv-gtk3.exe (or freeciv-gtk2.exe) and next when i click on the buttons "Start New Game", "Start Scenario Game" or "Load Saved Game".

DbgHelp are Debugging Tools for Windows and it seems that DbgHelp is not supported anymore for Windows XP by Microsoft. Therefore there may no solution for this error anymore.
