gtk+3 and the user's homedir .gtkrc-3.0

The gtk3 reference on resource files,  gtk+-3.0.2/docs/reference/gtk/html/gtk3-Resource-Files.html,states 
that,  although deprecated,      "certain files will be read at the end of gtk_init().        Unless 
modified, the files looked for will be      <SYSCONFDIR>/gtk-2.0/gtkrc and .gtkrc-3.0 in the users home 
My experience with the ~/.gtkrc-3.0 file when running my application compiled against gtk+-3.0.2is that it 
has no effect at all.
Specifically,   I have a file named both gtkrc-2.0 and gtkrc-3.0  (both hard-linked to same content which I 
show below)
When I compile my app against gtk-2 and run it,  I see the expected result,with the HighContrast theme 
applied to borders etc and the text of my GtkEntry entryBox in  Binner Gothic font.
When I compile the same app against gtk-3 and run it in the same way (without any XDG_CONFIG_HOME or any use 
of any new gtk-3 settings features such as a settings.ini,  css styles etc,i.e. trying to simulate a simple 
migration with only re-bulding the app),I see plain old Raleigh and the Sans 10 font for the text in the 
Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug ?  (in the documentation or in the code?)
By the way,  yes,  I did verify that my gtk3 build is in effect in my gtk3 scenario -I set up a settings.ini 
and css stylesheet as another variation,  and triedwith a new-to-gtk3 widget (lightswitch)  and then get my 
settings applied and thelight-switch works as expected.
(BTW-1  - I tried to search the mailing list for hits on .gtkrc-3.0 and got            Oops! This link 
appears to be broken.The requested URL /mailman/search was not found on this server
BTW-2  I hope this is the correct list for this question -  if not please advise)
