Hello, ...

is it normal that when i do :

gtk_object_set_data_full (widget, "user_data", ...)
and later 

gtk_object_get_user_data (widget);

i don't get the same data returned.

I will no more use the user_data function, but still, it was written in the
includes, that gtk_object_set/get_data (widget, "user_data", ...) is the same
as gtk_object_set/get_user_data. If it is no more the case it should be
corrected, also it would be best to state clearly in the includes that
user_data is no more to be used.
