Not really unit testing, but some worthwhile things to try are
a) changing the theme at runtime
b) changing GConf keys at runtime (if applicable)
c) setting G_FILENAME_ENCODING to something other than UTF-8
Also, I believe there was some environment variable that makes GDK spill
out warnings when using API that is not multihead-safe. Might require a
debug build of GTK+ though.
