Well, today I built Wary with GTK 2.24.5, as reported in above link, but the slow/hanging BootManager (Xdialog SFS-chooser window) is back again.
So I tried something that I had not done before, I compiled GTK 2.24.8 with this:
# ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=i486-t2-linux-gnu --with-xinput=yes --enable-debug=minimum --enable-introspection=no
I had not previously compiled GTK 2.24.8 with '--enable-introspection=no'. Well, that fixed it!
There were three problems:
1. Slow/hanging BootManager Xdialog window.
2. "gseal" errors when compile applications.
3. Long drop-down lists in GTK apps very slow.
Number 2, I compiled 'gtktetris', which previously exhibited the "gseal" errors.
Number 3, 'quicksetup' exhibits the slow and cpu-hogging drop-down lists.
I built wary with the new GTK 2.24.8, the above 3 problems have gone away.
The PETs are uploaded:

The gseal errors seem to have been caused by the gdkconfig.h file missing from the devx. At least that's how I fixed it in saluki.

Re missing gdkconfig.h
That's weird, I don't have it, yet don't get the "gseal" error.
Whereabouts exactly did you put it? I might throw it into the PET anyway, as a precaution.

I just put it in /usr/include.
If you can find an app that gets the GSEAL errors, and scroll all the way up to the first error - at least in my experience, it always complains about the missing header file. The GEAL errors are a red herring.

Thanks, I have put it in. Will also go back to the 2.24.8 PETs with introspection enabled, whatever difference that makes.

Thank you for this fix. I was driving myself nuts trying to figure out what was causing all those GSEAL errors during compilation.
