This is the wrong list, gtk-list would be better.

No because a function pointer in not equal to a member pointer.
You have 3 choices.

  - make the CloseTheApp a static member function.  most C++ handle
    a static member as a C function.  Disadvantage, you can't access
    "this" so it is as good as being out.

  - make proxies of all your functions.  That is a function which
    takes the callback, interprets the data as a C++ type and called
    the C++ function.

  - use the tool designed for the job, gtk--.  They have gone to great 
    lengths to make something usable from C++ transparently.  Thus
    passing a C++ method works just fine.  Several users report sucess
    running 1.2.0 under Win environment, ask on the gtkmm mailing list
    if you are interested in finding more info.  

Hope it helps.  (Isn't this a FAQ?)
