We need to use either gtk-2.19.x or glib-2.25.x, so yes, it is
a development release, but AFAICS we don't get along without one.

I leave the decision up to you. Does glib-2.25 work reasonably
well, or should we use glib-2.24 and thus gtk-2.19?

It would be great if you could prepare a patch for either the one
or the other case, _test_ it, and post it to the list. I'd then
include it immediately.

That's true. On the other hand, this is really a mistake on side
of the GTK project, not on our side. I hope this problem will
vanish when glib-2.26 is released. So for now, let's stick with
checking only for stable versions.
