I have no gtk3-engines- installed.
I still have a quickly dying Synaptic. I've just noticed that
gnome-terminal is filling the kernel log with masses of:
'<something> <somenumber> is drawn without a current allocation. This
should not happen.'
This seems to have been ongoing for a couple of months, and GTK3 is
strongly incriminated, RedHat being also affected, various reports
involving emacs and other GTK3 users. The death of my Synaptic produces
no log entries.
