I'm getting the same, but haven't had a chance to look at it yet.

Interesting thread, I would have thought glib would be released
shortly before gtk. That's probably ok though, depending on an older
dev version simply means that you miss a few last minute changes. I
*think* we should go with a stable gtk and any verison of glib that
works with it.
