Ok, I think we had a lot of arguments now. Could we try to agree on the

  1) Currently Gimp CVS depends on Gtk+ CVS, because the improvements
     made in Gtk+ CVS (over 1.3.6) are very important for the lead

  2) When the first release of GTK+ with the fixed api appears
     (aka 1.3.7) Gimp CVS will depend on the earliest possible

  3) When a bug in all GTK+-tarballs *massively* disturbs the GIMP
     developers and this bug is fixed in CVS we could make an exception
     to rule No. 2. However, this should be discussed on the Mailinglist.

Personally I think it would have been nice, when the port to the new
api had been happened after the release of GTK+ 1.3.7. However, I don't
think, reverting the port now is necessary.

Maybe we could ask the GTK+-Team for the 1.3.7 - release? I am a little
bit astonished that this has not yet happened.

And please stop getting personal.
