Insights and insults from GTK ...

Got this the other day while running Eclipse on Linux:

** (SWT:5087): WARNING **: Some clown returned undeclared exception 'IDL:Bonobo/BadArg:1.0'

That's it, I'm upgrading SWT's error messages to be more helpful and informative. How about, "You turd, you can't access a widget from outside the display thread"?



  • The reference to IDL and Bonobo makes me suspect that the culprit isn't actually Gtk, though, but ORBit or Bonobo. Part of the same stack, of course, but at least those two are mostly deprecated these days :-)
