Ok. Understood now.

IMO this only makes sense after all the libglade code has been replaced with 
gtkbuilder code. Otherwise we will always bail out on libglade calls. We're 
not there yet though.

Hmm, good point. So far there are no changes yet that require 2.24 as far as I 
know. But we'll see what turns up when the DISABLE_DEPRECATED defines are 

Shouldn't we change already to require 2.18 ? There is a comment 
in there that this is currently still 2.16 because the windows build didn't 
build with a more recent version. But the windows build is currently using 
2.24 already.
