Howdy, whenever I try to change themes via View > Editor > Colors I get absolutely nothing. Nothing shows up in the Message Window Status box and I get no color change whatsoever. I did dig into the source and tried to investigate some, but not being familiar with C programming or GTK made it difficult.

I do see this message in the Debug Messages window, which I am 99% is related.

LIBDBUSMENU-GTK CRITICAL : watch_submenu: assertion `GTK_IS_MENU_SHELL(menu)' failed

It looks like the attempt to bind commands to the menu during it's creation (which is during the initialization of Geany) is failing early due to this assertion test, and not giving a useful error message as a result, due to it's premature return/exit.

I'm compiling Geany from the latest source on Github using Ubuntu 11.10 (64-bit)
Maybe it's a GTK version/API issue? I'm not really sure, but I'm willing to try anything!

Thanks for the help, I'd really like to get to the bottom of this so I can use some of the awesome themes out there!
