Just to clarify. This is simply Glibc doing basic error checking on
things it is asked to do. What happens is something (Gdk-WARNING in
this case) calls free() (a glibc function) and glibc is saying "look,
you just asked me to do something that can't be right". The root of the
problem, therefore, isn't in Glibc, it's in GDK-WARNING.
