error (warning) msgs from redhat-config-users
I've been seeing these warning messages for a while now with pygtk2/libglade2,
and I don't really know what they mean. It's complaining about not finding a
handler for the signals that various widgets create, but the handlers are
obviously there since clicking on the buttons actually does something.
I've emailed the maintainer of pygtk2/libglade2 to see if he knows. We'll see
what he says.

"There was a bug in the last pygtk release (1.99.8) where it would decref a
reference it didn't own in the signal_autoconnect() wrapper. This is probably
the cause of the problem you are seeing. Either try checking out CVS head, or
editing libglade.override and get rid of the Py_DECREF call just before the
g_signal_connect_closure() call in connect_many()."
msw has built a new pygtk2 that pulls in these changes and doesn't spew all the
handler warnings. The deprecation warnings will still be there though. There
doesn't seem to be a way to avoid them at the moment.
