Sorry, I shouldn't have assumed you knew the connection.

The gwrap bug showed up in gnucash when I tried to build G2 from source after 
a gwrap update to 1.9. I had to downgrade to 1.3 which won't build with gcc4 
using default settings (which upgrade warnings to errors). Only by disabling 
the use of warnings as errors can I build G2 - the problem is that by doing 
that I don't always catch errors in the code that break the build for those 
who *can* build with gwrap 1.9 and gcc4.

It would be useful to know if you can reproduce this bug when you build G2 on

GNOME2_STATUS covers most, I've got my own "incomplete" code that could have a 
long list of bugs that simply reflect what is still needing to be written / 
tested / bug fixed.

IMHO, I'm not sure that G2 is ready even for experimental. What's the reason 
for packaging a CVS branch that is undergoing such frequent changes?
