That is actually two different bugs, both of them in glade.
Gazpacho solves one of them by being aware of the default
properties and only write modified properties.
The other one, which is not solved by any gui designers afaik
is to ask which gtk+ version is targeted. To solve this
the gui designer needs to know which version of gtk+ introduced the
property. It also applies to types.
