	Ok - these are caused by having GTK_MODULES set, and them pointing at
Gtk+2.0 modules; I imagine, and then running a Gtk1.2 program.

	I imagine red-carpet should be doing a paranoid "unset ('GTKMODULES')"
before it initializes Gtk+

	Yes; unset GTK_MODULES; or 'export GTK_MODULES=' before running things.

	Notably; if you set the gconf key for accessibility you don't need to
export the environment variable for Gnome to be accessible; and you'll
have fewer component related problems too.

	HTH, of course - when RC is ported to Gtk+2.0, [ the new RCD code will
make the front-end much thinner I'm told anyway ], it'll not only work
fine but make package management accessible, until then you need to
unset the GTK_MODULES I believe.
