What Ive done in similar cases is just use a GtkButton with an icon
(choose size button or size menu depending), and when the button
is clicked I use the GTK+ api to fire a filechooser dialog on the fly

okay, i've done it like that. For some reason i can't manipulate the
entry after I have chosen and set the text. But at least it looks okay

When you load your UI, use gtk_builder_get_object() at initialization time
for every specific widget that you need, load these addresses to a control
object in your application (i.e. the actual object that creates the UI and
calls gtk_builder_add_from_file()), add a member to your application object
for every widget you actually need a pointer to.

Sounds a better way in comparison to look up dynamically for names. I am
now copying widget pointers via gtk_builder_get_object() to a structure
at the initialization.

Btw, is it possible to give some numeric id's to widgets at Glade so
that a search on a GSList could be made ( return val of
gtk_builder_get_objects()) with integers.
