This is rather worrying. If Gtk3 keeps changing that much between minor 
versions, it *might* be better to stay with Gtk2. At least we can 
reasonably expect that Gtk2 will be shipped for another couple of years, 
whereas Gtk3 will always(?) have only one version available on the 
user's system.

I don't know much about distribution issues, can we somehow restrict 
linking to e.g. libgtk-3.2 if we find problems with newer versions?
