I noticed that is now possible to compile Emacs with GTK3. It looks
pretty good! Thanks guys!

By any chance does GTK3 fix the multiple-display bugs that keep some of us 
using the non-GTK configuration?  (From previous discussions, I expect this is 
a long shot...)

No idea. I can test it if you tell me the bug number!

Presumably the one gtk2 emacs daemon mode now warns about.


address@hidden:~$ emacs --daemon

Warning: due to a long standing Gtk+ bug
Emacs might crash when run in daemon mode and the X11 connection is unexpectedly lost. Using an Emacs configured with --with-x-toolkit=lucid does not have this problem.


If the problem is still present in gtk3, and a comment on the bug suggests it is - https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=85715#c55 , I guess gtk3 emacs daemon mode should spit out a similar warning (if it doesn't already, I haven't got as far as trying a gtk3 emacs build yet).
