I usually use GTK_DEBUG=updates ./app to have it certainly work, without
fear of GOption, popt or something else eating the args before reaching
gtk_init in the library - some non-gnome apps are broken like that.

Note that you need a full debug build of gtk+ for this, built with
Typically distribution packages have them built with
--enable-debug=minimal to have g_return_if_fail and other minimal things
work, but not extra debug code that introduce a considerable instruction
increase for debugging the library itself purposes.

It seems gdk_window_set_debug_updates works without full debug, but the
GTK_DEBUG env var content and --gtk-debug argument isn't parsed if it
isn't a full debug build. I believe it would be nice if that's done in
any case, to have debug facilities work that aren't left out when
G_ENABLE_DEBUG isn't defined.
