bonobo_main is just a wrapper on GMainLoop creation and start. It only activates bonobo with bonobo_activate and then start main loop. So as gtk_main.
Moreover some developers want to deprecate even gtk_main in the future, and use the replacement from glib.
So you can just use gtk_main, everything will work. But don't forget to call bonobo_activate first.
