I know backport does not makes sense, but i think this is the fastest

etc.. (i remember making gtk.so work with already existing official
udebs took a week or so).
Hmm. How do you see the implementation of this? Would we need to ask
Alastair to include that patch in gtk+2.0-directfb?
If the patch can be applied there, this may work. If it needs to be
applied elsewhere (in another debian package), I doubt it will be done.
yes, for sure this will affect libgtk+-directfb only (if mike can update
gtkdfb 2.0.9), so Alstair will have to patch some sourcefiles and
rebuild the udeb, but nothing more and i hope this won't be
I think in principle we should ignore or work around such bugs. We should
of course check if any problems we find are still present in 2.6.8, but
otherwise I feel we had better list minor issues as "known problems" than
take away valuable time from our upstream that could be spent working on
the newer version.
This is true, but i see the switch to GTKDFB 2.8.3 light-years away from
us and so we'll have to stay with GTKDFB 2.0.9 months still.
Those bugs in GtkTreeView are particulary annoying for the user and
compromise a lot frontend's usability, so i tought that fixing them was
for now now just let's wait and let'ssee what mike can do on this..
