This is not a solution to that problem, but the dripping water is just condensation from the cold water in the tank. Like a coke can on a warm day. It goes away after everything warms up. It is more than likely a gas valve, but I have fooled mine into working by not turning the valve all the way up to the full on position.

Paint fumes can foul a thermocouple. If you have painted anywhere in the home this could be the issue otherwise its the gas valve.
