This has been discussed here at least twice before :-(

I reported it to RMS, and he said "use gdb on Emacs".  Which I won't, because 
recompiling Emacs on my laptop takes more than an hour.

Maybe someone with more resources can follow this path and finally get
this fixed?

I don't get the connection here (how it would solve the problem), and
anyway if you mean make gtk2 (and _especially_ gnome) a dependency of
Emacs, I am most definitely against.

Nothing can be explained to a stone.
Or to a stoned person, either.
