Have been working on some tools using gtk+ & ran into a behavioural problem
with GLists. If you are adding data to a GList using g_list_insert_sorted you
will get duplicate entries. This appears (to me, anyhow) to be inappropriate
behaviour. I would expect g_list_insert to allow duplicates; you might need
them. A sorted list, on the other hand, should not insert duplicates.
Suggest that either g_list_insert_sorted be modified to reject duplicates (
cmp == 0), or that a g_list_insert_uniq_sorted be added.
