[pygtk] Speaking of libglade...
Wed, 06 Feb 2002 13:00:11 -0600
I seem to be having some trouble with libglade
for glade files larger than about 230K. libglade
cannot seem to find widget names for widgets near
the end of a file this big. If I chop the end off
the file and put it in a new file (fun with vi),
then things work o.k. from the new file.
What could I be doing wrong?
I'm using gtk 1.2.9, python 2.1, pygtk 0.6.8, libglade 0.16.
Thanks for any help,
