I solved the loading now by writing my own glue code but I ran into
another problem now.
When I construct my class it has the type
which is correct. Anyway, if this GObject is passed back to the C code
the type now is GObject which is or course wrong. Of course I call
Anjuta::init() from the C code before to register the new types but this
does not seem to help.
Without having the correct type I won't be able to call any virtual
functions or to connect to signals.
