Hi!!!  I use RedHat 5.0 and I noticed the same problem when I upgraded my GTK+
versions.  What I did was to take the source for control panel and compile it
against a more recent version.  There was a problem with a tooltips method
change, but it was an easy fix.  I haven't had any problems with control panel 
since...If you have problems with a future version of GTK+ I would suggest
maybe recompiling and linking *statically* with the GTK+ libraries...this will
freeze the version for control panel rather permanently.  :)
