I'm please to see that you are experiencing same issues that I do.

I'll do that. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I feel enabling DEBUG in
Makefile.config won't help much, because the DEBUG flag essentially
outputs e2 behavior - which is imho OK, see below - and not GTK issues.

I tried e2 (svn build 685) with my previous system (which was
Fedora 7 not upgraded), and I'm positive these glitches didn't exist
before. So I'll try to see options in GTK or gcc.
