THat appears to be the one in /usr/lib.  THe one in /usr/local/lib has
00099800 T gtk_object_get

This appears to have broken several things, including the spawn process
buttons.  ANd gnumeric still doesn't work.
I deleted the one in /usr/lib.  THat appears to, unfortunately, have been
the one RH wants.  Bah.

I did that; the gtk+ i installed was from source (a .tar.gz I downloaded.
I forget which program it was that required newer gtk+.  Bah.)
So, now I go back and reinstall and recompile that.  I most likely still
have the source around.  (make distclean; ./configure --prefix=/usr
--exec-prefix=/usr ; make ; make install.)  And apparently I needed it for
glib 1.2.7

Terrorism.  Coups.  Armed conflict.  Any one can seriously cramp your
