In the patch it would probably make sense to move the malloc inside the

I'm not sure what kind of code is to be inserted for "TODO" right after
malloc(). So I kept them separate.
Hmm. General question...
How does GTK_CHECK_VERSION(2,8,0) work with 2.10 libs?
Looks like this check is currently used in 2 places.
According to gtkversion.h GTK_CHECK_VERSION(2,8,0) is true for all
versions >= 2.8.0.
Aike has spotted a bug that would have been difficult to catch, in fact
this would have shown up only when booting in rescue mode and using
recent (2.8.21) GTKDFB libraries.
There are a couple of places in the GTK frontend where i check for GTK
version, and this is because i once used to compile it against GTK
2.8/2.9 while 2.0.9 was used in the d-i.
Now that d-i has switched to 2.8.x, there would be no longer need for
version check: should i remove the version checks so that compiling the
GTK frontend against old GTKDFB 2.0.9 will simply fail?
