Well, I did use most of the patch :-).  I did not like adding C code to make 
the menu work, and the way I did it avoids the need for code.  Also note that 
using code for the menu would greatly conflict with the new plugin

AFAIK, the GUIs looked pretty much identical to me (your patch vs. what is 
there now).  If not, I would not mind if you would find a way to polish the 
glade file even more.  :-).

Well, they do interfer with other code in the new design, sorry.

I just hacked up a 3-line workaround that solves the issue, btw.  The problem 
is, that I hate workarounds :-).  Anyway, I am now quite convinced that this 
is some odd GTK bug.
