Hmm.. I think this effectively bypasses the logging and exception 
generation I'd implemented in gtkobject.inc.

The way it was implemented one didn't need extra push and pop code.
OK if you hit a bad drawable or so the application exits, but at least one 
could look at the callstack before it happens.

If it is only for the ability of a backtrace and/or an Exception, I vote 
for the way it was.
