Seems that during my landlord's painting spree last fall some of our windows have been painted shut. These were windows that previously moved without any difficulty. Does anyone know any easy way to pry these windows open? The windows are wood frame.

Emphasis is on "gently." They do make a special tool for this application, but a knife usually does the trick.
