With so many messages on this topic, I can't see whether someone
already tried reporting these bugs to GTK developers and saying we find
them very painful.  Has that been tried?

Have we tried patching GTK to add workarounds -- for instance,
defining an "exit function" hook to call instead of `_exit'?
We could distribute such patches, and they might accept the patches.
