Yep, Gtk2::ImageMenuItem::set_image requires a Gtk2::Image widget, not a
Gtk2::Gdk::Pixbuf object.

You should create a new Gtk2::Image widget to pass to the ::set_image
method, like this:

Another option, which takes more work but may pay off with less work and easier reuse in the long run (e.g. if you want to create a toolbar button for the same action, have a bunch of custom icon+text combinations, or use UIManager to create the menus), is to create your own stock item.

See examples/ in the Gtk2 source tree.

"Ghostbusters" is the best movie of this decade.
