GTK+ problems on Red Hat 8.0


I was wondering: Is GTK+-2.1 and/or the current CVS version binary incompatible with GTK+-2.0.6?

I've had a few problems with GTK+ on Red Hat 8.0 and I'm not sure where the problem is. After installing Red Hat 8.0, I found the TextView widget example in the gtk-demo program no longer displayed the example of international and right to left text properly, just blocks of small binary images where the text should be. It worked fine with the same GTK+ version on Red Hat 7.3.

Thinking upgrading to the latest GLIB/GTK+ version would help, first 2.1, then the latest CVS version, I found that many programs now crashed with the following message from the g_type_create_instance() function in gtype.c :

glib-object warning - "cannot create instance of abstract (non-instantiatable) type GtkWidget"

Does any one know if this is problem with Red Hat 8.0, GTK+ or perhaps me.
