Oops. I wonder where i got GTK_NO_CHECK_CASTS from?

Here is the full straight profile:

Unfortunately there is no call graph info, since this was done using the
eazel-profiler, which doesn't generate that. I'm actively working on
making it better though, so I'll add that in the future. Unfortunately
I'm a bit blocked by two compiler bugs I found concerning
-finstrument-functions... Just waiting for Jakub to fix them :)
