The problem is that adding the pixbuf to the tree model does another ref
(2-1=1, so the object won't get destroyed...).

Well, the file extension or the mime-type in the meta-data info dialog (right

You don't need to slow down -- just before you commit test things thoroughly
so that you don't introduce new bugs...

Same answer: if you can be sure not to introduce new bugs, polishing is ok.

Well, the goal was more to give people like you more energy, not less ;-).

Will do. You might also want to join us on IRC...
