Yes, anyone with access to OSX, please try running a simple script (e.g.
python or ruby) using the "Tools -> Run" command and see if there is a

I've taken some time to look into this when you originally notified me
about the crashing, but there is nothing in the changelogs or Glib source
code that would indicate a fix. The process for rebuilding GTKOSX is very

Compiling page for producing a GTKOSX library package). I may attempt to
do this for Glib only later today.
