Description of problem:
When I use certain GNOME 2.0 apps such as terminal, I get Seg Faults as a result
when using GTK 2.1.4.  libgnomeui needs to have an rpm made for the stable
series (As I like to mix and match stable with unstable).

I am aware that a new release of libgnomeui will come out with the release of
GTK 2.2, but currently I don't wish to use GNOME 2.1 only GNOME 2.0

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install GTK 2.1.4 RPM
2. Open gnome-terminal

Actual Results:  Application Seg Faults with

(gnome-terminal:23344): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: cannot create instance of
abstract (non-instantiatable) type `GtkWidget'

snapshot, but it's intended to be tested as a set. ;-)

If you want to patch an old libgnomeui, look for a function call to 
gtk_type_new() or g_object_new() that takes GTK_TYPE_WIDGET as an argument, and

I know this is closed, but thanks for you help.  My system is working again
fully and I can use all gnome software,
