Did you or can you build pygtk-2.3.97 from src or did it come from a
package manager? Could it be a gcc-3.4.2 problem with pygtk-2.3.97?
If so, the pygtk folks would probably like to hear about it.
If you have minute to test compile pygtk-2.3.97 and let me know, I
would be happy to forward the results on to the pygtk mailing list in
case of failure.
