Belated thanks.  Do you think the warnings cited in

bug#26855: 25.2; Menus off screen, gtk errors

are handled by your changes (I've been too lazy to check that)?  This is
one of our few clients with GTK 3.22, sadly building from Emacs 25 only.

I understand.  But can't we catch that in a less intimidating way?

By removing these calls as you proposed and waiting till someone with
GTK 3.22 hollers.

I have no ideas of the implications of such an approach and whether it's
feasible.  We would first have to find all instances where we use an X
solution instead of a GTK one and fix them.  After that we would have to
decide whether the cases where no adequate GTK solution was found can be
simply removed or ignored for GTK built Emacsen.

Unless you are prepared to do that, I see no-one here to tackle such a
task.  Daniel Colascione has proposed to "go GTK-only" a couple of
months ago but seems to keep a low profile since then (like all others
involved in that thread).

Thanks again for all the work, martin
