No particular reason - its just when I searched "Vector" and "HashTable" in
Google, glib / GTK+ came up first.
I tried using STL for insertions as well, but I came up with the same
c_str() "addressing" problem. The issue seems to be that when I insert with
a .c_str() into the hash table (both gtk's and STL's) it records the
address(?). It seems like if I pass in a "string literal", it works. Is
there some way, glib can convert variables into string literals?
I do notice there is a "g_string(x)" macro but I'm not sure how to use it.

Is there a particular reason to why you, as a C++ programmer, want to
use GTK+ and glib? IMHO, you should probably use STL and gtkmm. In that
way you'd avoid many problems like this.
