Oops! Yes, I have it also in 1.0.4 (perhaps I should update my
installed gtk+ version). Sorry for the noise in the list.

What about the other question? Is there anybody constructing
composed or from-scratch new widgets? I know from the GIMP, that
the experience with plug-ins was very succesful: everywhere you
can find new plug-ins making all sort of funny things. I mean,
together with the normal development of gtk+ (and all his C++
wrappers) I think it would be nice to have a lot of new widgets.
I write here a list of what I think we could have (most of them
available in Qt, which I was using till now):

- LCD display
- LED display (cool! I saw it in EZWGL)
- standard dialogs (message-box, printer dialog - don't know
  whether they are already ok).
- printer-class (it's important to print things, you know)
- scientific plots (I think I'll try something on this)
- cool-buttons
