Possible?

Is it possible that gtk actually gets worse with every release? Maybe it is my code that is faulty but i have to do all kinds of tweaks to my software even for point releases and memory usage seems to go up as well along with gtk version numbering.

It is probably my fault in the first place, but i have given up and started migrating all of it to Qt and interfacebuilder is such an very nice piece of software so it is not such a painful migration at least.

If you really aren't locked into one DE, and if you are switching from gnome to QT sounds like you aren't, you should consider just making your app in HTML5 using a webkit widget and exposing the os features you need via javascript, ala phonegap.

Your app will look nice, be faster (really) and be 10x more portable.
