Are you building with GTK? There is a patch in the archives for this.
No, this happens with a non GTK build. The following patch makes it
work for me again:
But this is not a correct fix, it just reverts to the behaviour before
the recent GTK changes which broke it. With my patch applied, it will
probably not work anymore fot the GTK build, i.e. it must be fixed
correctly in some other way to make it for for both GTK and non-GTK.
