Changed what? There is no test for glibc version in the filer (only in the
binary, which has nothing to do with us). If you know a way to remove the
symbol versioning information, please let us know!

Yes, I'm trying to avoid libc upgrades on my debian system to try and
prevent this, but removing the run-time check would be the best solution.
Perhaps some linker guru here knows how? Using a chroot is a partial
solution, but it takes masses of disk space, and you have to maintain
several of them (one for non-GUI stuff, one for GTK 2.0, one for GTK 2.2,
etc) and it's generally too much work.

They can all be set with ROX-Session (or .gtkrc-2.0 if you want to set
them differently to other applications). You could also set the DPI for
your monitor (see the FAQ).
