Sorry for this misunderstanding -- the other reports I was talking of
are those that were reported for the earlier version, I think it was
2.12.1-2 when this faulty patch was added first. It was removed in
2.12.1-4 -- and now re-added again. I can take ANY most simplistic pygtk
application, like the following
win = gtk.Window(gtk.WINDOW_TOPLEVEL)
win.set_title("GTK Simple Test")
and it does not show up the main Window. Going back to 2.12.1-4 --
everything works fine again.
