I'm not quite sure what you are asking me to do here. I see that there are
newer versions of GTK+ (2.12.11) and Orbit2 (2.14.13) available than what is
specified in defaults.sh (2.12.8 and 2.14.11, respectively) but I can't tell
if they fix anything relevant to GnuCash. The ORBit2 release notes are
pretty short and cryptic so I really don't understand what has been fixed
there, and I can't reproduce any of the reported problems myself anyway (for
example, bug 510720).
