I've put some changes into svn that help deal with this. Most actions I've 
tried sofar seem to be as good as before, though sometimes dialogs are a little 
slower to appear (due to lockout while a filelist is being refreshed). However 
a couple (I've noticed: change ownership, change permissions) will still crash 
badly if activated via main file-list context menu, UNLESS I pause for several 
seconds between popping up the menu and activating the relevant item in the 
menu. I have absolutely no idea why this works at all, given the library 
changes !

Every app that has a context-menu for a treeview will have the same issue, I 
think. I've got a little more exploring to do, and then will probably submit a 
request to gtk devs to revert the menu mechanism to the way it was before 2.16. 
But who knows if the devs will take any notice ?
