  Hey All,

    The first time I tried to compile gnome 0.20 I got this same Error Message
(I also use WindowMaker). After lot's
of debugging in panel/ I discovered that panel_corba_gtk_main() was returning
instead of going into the GTK
main loop. Further Poking revealed that this was inherent (?) in mico-2.0.8 I
rolled back my mico version to
2.0.5 and all my problems went away. I don't know exactly what the problem
was, but it appears that the GTK
support in mico-2.0.8 is broken. Of course if you're using 2.0.5, this isn't
helping you at all. HOWEVER, if you
find that your execution is making it to panel_corba_gtk_main(), but this
functin returns normally, your mico
configuration should be considered suspect.

Hope This Helps. If Im Being Stupid some please tell me :)
