Yes, I've seen that.

Good question. I dunno. I would tend to say that we should standardize on
gtk+/glib 2.2, but there is a installed base of distro that ship with 2.0 (Think
Mdk 9.0, RH8 comes with gtk+/glib 2.1 so this one should be no problem)

I walked arround the problem by testing the glib version and using a local copy
of the function when using glib < 2.1 but that's clearly not a solution for all
problems of this type.
