Re: checking for memory leaks in gtk

You don't directly, but the theme engine you are using might. I tried
your program under valgrind and it reports no leaks, so I imagine you
are OK. I don't have a directfb install or a windows machine handy
though, so I can't test there.

I think you're OK. I'd change a few things on style grounds though:

on_close_clicked (GtkButton * button, gpointer user_data)
  GtkWidget *window = GTK_WIDGET (user_data);

  gtk_widget_destroy (window);

I'd use a GTK_WIDGET() cast here, it'll check the pointer for you, much safer.

You shouldn't use gtkfixed unless you REALLY have to. gtk has a large
set of layout widgets that can do all this for you automatically and
attractively. As a bonus, when someone translates your application and
the sizes of all the text strings changes, you won't need to
reposition everything.

gtk_button_new_with_mnemonic () is a strange one to use, that's really
for menus. gtk_button_new_from_stock () might be better.
