Dear Maintainer,

after upgrading glib to the unstable version, emacs does not start anymore. It
hangs instead. I tracked this down to the GTK style: If I choose either oxygen-
gtk or QtCurve as GTK2 style, emacs hangs on startup. If I choose Adwaita, it
works all right. Other GTK2 applications (Liferea, Firefox, Thunderbird)
continue to work with all these styles. I downgraded glib again to the 2.33
version in testing, which fixed the issue.

The backtrace of emacs hanging when using oxygen-gtk starts as follows:

The one from QtCurve has the same top 5 frames (i.e. from
g_spawn_command_line_sync on).

I first reported this against oxygen-gtk as #707699, but after the downgrade
experiment I'm pretty sure the bug belongs here.

No need to open two reports for the same bug, you can reassign instead.

I've investigated a bit and this is a bug in the oxygen engine and it affects both the gtk2 and the gtk3 versions. The upstream bug report is:

And it was fixed in

for gtk2 and gtk3 respectively.
