yes, currently GnuCash 2.2.x and trunk depend on gtk+ >= 2.6.0, so
libglade would complain each time it fails to set a gtk+-2.8-only
property on a gtk+-2.6 widget.  That is why it is recommended to run
util/glade-fixup, a script to remove some property lines, before
committing a glade file or sending in a patch.
