Summary: Gaim hangs when changing display settings

Initial Comment:
To reproduce bug:

1.  Start Gaim
2.  Make sure the buddy list is currently in view.
3.  Open Windows display properties.  (Right-click
desktop, select properties)
4.  Click the appearance tab.
5.  Under the Windows and Buttons drop-down, change
from Windows XP style to windows classic style or
6.  Apply the changes.

At this point, GAIM 2.0.0 beta 3 hangs.  Task manager
shows Gaim using nearly 100% CPU.  Sometimes Gaim will
recover after 5-10 mins, other times it will continue
to hang, requiring ending the process.  Sometimes it
will hang when changing other display settings, such as
shadows or colors, but the windows and buttons setting
seems to make it hang every time.

Beta 2 did not display this problem.

I figured it might be a GTK+ problem.  I've been using Gaim
1.5 for some time, and 2.0.0 b2 for a little bit.  I never
had it hang until beta 3.  Just to verfiy, I went back to
beta 2, and no more hangs.  Maybe its just a quirk on my
system, but for me at least, only beta 3 seems to do this.

Beta2 and every other version has done this too.  It is a
GTK+ issue.  In fact, it will happen when simply changing
the desktop background image.
