Thanks Tom, 

The current svn did compile.  I lost a couple of icons and was busy learning
how to install them when I came across the following issue, which seems to be
new with gtk-3.10. I cannot be absolutely certain that it is new, because I
don't change my emelfm2 configuration very often, but I have certainly never
seen this behaviour before.  The problem affects both the new svn build and
my installed version from last week's svn.  Steps to reproduce:

(1) Start emelfm2 and confirm that double click on any directory opens it as
(2) Open Change Configuration Settings window.  Make and accept a change, or
simply discard and close the window.
(3) Double click on a directory to open it.  Nothing happens.
(4) Double click again on the same directory (or another).  Nothing happens. cpu
utilisation on one core now rises to 100% and stays there.  I have to kill the
instance of emelfm2 with killall.

This affects both me, using my usual themed version of emelfm2, and my test
user with no theme set.
