fixed, i'll commit after i make sure the file selection stuff works with 
gtk 2.2.  seems when the 'edit list' button is clicked, it opens the 
list file, and then calls gdk_pixbuf_new_from_file() on each one to make 
sure they're valid images.  but then it never frees them.  there's one 
other memleak in there somewhere (fortunately it's really small) that i 
still have to track down.

i've noticed several of the mcs plugins seem to leak memory just by 
repeatedly opening and closing the prefs panel.  i've managed to watch 
xfce-mcs-manager's mem usage increase by repeatedly opening and closing 
the backdrop settings, window manager settings,  and user interface 
settings.  the others may leak some too, but the tool i'm using (just 
watching in gnome-system-manager) only has resolution to 0.1MB.  could 
this be a problem with the mcs manager itself?
