The behaviour of GtkAboutDialogs was changed between 2.8 and 2.10 - developers are now required to set up a callback to hide the dialog when the user clicks on the "close" button. This brings the dialog into line with the others and isn't such a problem.
Hmm, this looks hard to fix properly. The problem is that gtk_show_about_dialog uses varargs to allow calling it with a variable number of arguments. As far as I know, there's no way to construct this varargs thingy at run-time, so we can't use gtk_show_about_dialog; we have to reimplement it. This of course means that changes to the original gtk_show_about_dialog have no effect on our version. This can in theory be fixed by just porting the changes. But unfortunately the mentioned change makes use of internal data structures to destroy the license and credits dialogs (if they exist) in the handler for the "close" signal. Since we don't have access to these structures, we can't implement this. Unless I'm missing something. The best approximation I could come up with is attached. It simply hides the about dialog when the "close" signal is fired. Open license and credit dialogs stay open. Any suggestions for improvements? -- Bye, -Torsten
