I'm using gtk2 (2.22) and had (my own) small program which when I changed
2.20 -> 2.22 became teribly slow. It uses GtkTreeView. The workaround was
to switch off the sorting of the TreeView while adding a large number of
items and set it when the list is filled. Then, the TreeView became
very quick.

Maybe this is connected also to the gtk3 problem? (Anyway, it is a bug... :-( )
