Are you building pan against gtk3, then, or still gtk2?  The 
recommendation last saw was to still build against gtk2, as the gtk3 
build isn't stable yet.

Of course, if you're specifically testing the gtk3 build in ordered to be 
able to report the issues and help stabilize it, go right ahead!  Just be 
sure to mention the fact when you report anything. =:^)  Otherwise, tho, 
for the time being, build against gtk2 even on a gnome3 system, as that's 
still where the focus is.  The gtk3 build is more an exercise in seeing 
that the port can be done and what it takes, at this point, as opposed to 
an intention to actually expect it to run it in production.

If you're building against gtk3, for the time being expect just this sort 
of strange intermittent errors.

Now if you're still building against gtk2, that's quite a different story 
indeed and definitely something to report.  But in that case, where 
gnome-3 might be involved as with this Cantarell font, please mention 
that you're still building against gtk2 with any mention of gtk/gnome3.
