Alex found the problem with the remaining person claiming to get the
bug--they were getting a crash due to a translation problem(!).  So
the newer gtk+ should fix bug 310270.  Was this an issue that affected
enough people that we need a new gtk+ release before releasing Gnome
2.12.0?  (I didn't see the bug myself and one of the three patches
went into ORBit and maybe that's enough, but I don't know...)
