Re: Emacs snapshot/libgtk problem
I'm not sure if emacs-snapshot questions are relevant on
debian-emacsen, since the packages are not in Debian anymore. Feel
free to email me privately in case of problems.

That's an older snapshot from Sep 3rd, and GTK+ 2.12 was uploaded in
sid on Sep 20th.

emacs-snapshot 20070922-1 was built after GTK+ 2.12 reached
unstable, so it depends on libgtk2.0-0 (>= 2.12.0) because of a
shlibs bump. That wasn't the case for the snapshot installed on
your first machine, which is from Sep 3rd.

That's the real problem. It must be trying to upgrade your whole
system including libc6, etc.
Why don't you use the etch backport instead? It should work on
lenny too (but I haven't tried).
