This bug affects me, but it says that it has been fixed in
gtk+2.0 - 2.24.8-0ubuntu1. I have version
2.24.6-0ubuntu5. Is there some way for me to upgrade?
(Ubuntu 11.10 64bit unity)
Backport the version of GTK+ 2.0 that is in 12.04 to 11.10, or ask that the fix be SRUed to 11.10 as well, on the bug report itself. You probably should have just asked directly on the bug report, rather than on here.
