Well, I may have gotten myself in a rabbit hole here.  I'm still
running Fedora 7 on my laptop and glib 2.12.13.  I can try to upgrade
to the latest, but, from previous experience, that's quite painful
with the myriad of dependencies on the gnome side.

I'll try the stable release and see what happens.

BTW, I just tried the Windows version and it looks and feels great! In
fact, yesterday I finally made the permanent move from Quicken to
gnucash with my 20+ years of data.  There will be some pain, but the
gain in freedom alone is worth it.
