hmm, don't think I touched anything in that part...

The GameList window is still WIP, just started porting it and I still
need to figure out how to do several things there...
I agree though, that we should get rid of the buttons and just use the
doubleclick and cursor movement... will change that next... I just
thought since it compiled at the moment I'll already push it...

yes, not sure if this is because of the main loop or some other issue...

should be easy to fix... do you want to change that? Else I can do it too...

could also be the way I started the window... there is gtk_widget_show
and gtk_window_present and I think the file browser uses
gtk_dialog_run... perhaps we need to call gtk_window_present first?
Should be solvable though.
