There is Gtk::Buildable::get_name() and Gtk::Widget::get_name() and they
presumably return different things.

But we didn't start deriving from Gtk::Buildable until gtkmm 3, so I
don't know why the behaviour would have changed in gtkmm 2.22. Maybe
something changed in GTK+ then.

You could try gtk_buildable_get_name(idc_quit->gobj())
