True.  Glade 3.10 is a real $!#!@@$$## that don't even work for GTK2
anymore :@

Client-side windows.

AFAIK yeah, with 2.24 GTK works all fine again on Windows.  This said, I
found many app working just find with 2.22, and I think 2.18 too.
Actually I'd better say that >= 2.16 && < 2.24 had *some* problems, not
that they were completely broken.
