Monday night, I used Yast to apply all available updates to my
workstation. Prior to this, everything was working fine, but I hadn't
applied any updates for about six months.

After updating, Gnome is not happy.


Symptom #1: Trying to use Gnome Terminal, I get these messages:

(gnome-terminal:11102): Gtk-WARNING **: GModule
(/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/libclearlooks.so) initialization check
failed: Gtk+ version too old (micro mismatch)

(gnome-terminal:11102): Gtk-WARNING **: GModule
(/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/libclearlooks.so) initialization check
failed: Gtk+ version too old (micro mismatch)

(gnome-terminal:11102): Gtk-WARNING **: GModule
(/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/libclearlooks.so) initialization check
failed: Gtk+ version too old (micro mismatch)

(gnome-terminal:11102): Gtk-WARNING **: GModule
(/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/libclearlooks.so) initialization check
failed: Gtk+ version too old (micro mismatch)
The program 'gnome-terminal' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.
(Details: serial 316 error_code 2 request_code 94 minor_code 0)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error()
function.)


Symptom #2: Entering Yast/Software Management goes ok. When I exit
Software Management, though, I get a pop-up windows with several of these
same errors in it:

Gtk-WARNING **: GModule (/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/
libclearlooks.so) initiaization check failed: Gtk+ version too old (micro
mismatch)

Similarly, Yast/Software Repositories opens ok, but on closing it, I get
the same pop-up window of error messages.



Google turned up what looks like the same symptoms here:
http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-f.../msg00153.html

I tried changing the openSUSE-11.1-update repo priority from 20 to 99 as
suggested, updated again, and afterward still have the same problem.

I can use the Konsole terminal from Kde, though I'm using Gnome as the
desktop environment. Enable or "disable desktop" effects has no affect on
the problem.

Both the Gnome-Terminal package and the Gtk2-engines package claim to be
from Gnome 2.26.

Before I start trying to back this mess out to Gnome 2.24, anybody got
any ideas on getting Gnome 2.26 to work correctly?
