Sorry, I pushed the send button too early after being distracted by
something else. I initially wanted to touch on both the switch statement
and the fact that run does not appear to execute :)

Do you have a Gtk::Main in your test application? I don't think the
runtime (plain gtk) part of widget instantiation works unless Gtk::Main
is running.

Since you lose execution control due to Main you will need to call
Gtk::Dialog::run() through an event handler in your main window, or if
you don't have a main window, in an idle handler.

AFAIK the run() method blocks the gtk main loop until a response is
