I just installed the latest version of gtk2 (2.16.5,REV=2009.08.06) that was 
released this weekend and my applications are working again.  Thanks for
fixing this.

One thing I did when I was a maintainer was run a diff on the the prototype
file between the current release and the new build and carefully examine
all differences before copying the prototype file to the root directory
of the build.  Something like this might be added to the GAR (or whatever
build system you are using now).  This would add an extra check for things
like missing files or extra files getting included that shouldn't be there.
