This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.

I no longer see the GLib-GObject warnings in Fedora 22 - resolve as fixed?

Thanks Sitsofe! Yes.

I did some more research on the glib change in g_object_class_install_property() API and found the glib bug which added this warning and later removed it.

Link to gnome bug, https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=698614

There was a code change made in gobject 2.38 to add the warning to g_object_class_install_property() API. This was later reverted and converted to a documentation warning in gobject 2.42. So, you would see this warning only if you are using the affected gobject library versions i.e. 2.38 or 2.40.

The warning in using g_object_class_install_property() after class initialization is about thread safety. open-vm-tools has been using this feature of gobject since ages and it is not multi-threaded during initialization when g_object_class_install_property() API is called. So, there is nothing to be fixed.
