[Techtalk] Problems with a small program...

I have a program I've installed, from both a tarball and an rpm
alternately, which I'm having problems with and I'm not sure where to go
to from here, since the project seems to be dead.

I had the same version installed and working previously in RedHat 7.1,
now in 7.3 it doesn't work.  It's a backup program, lnxbackup, that is
supposed to display system directories in one portion of a window and
allow you to add them to the other section of the window which displays
the directories selected to be backed up.  The problem is that it's not
displaying the widget(?) with the source directories.  It's not even
drawing the object at all.  It uses GTK to draw the GUI.

I get no errors on "make" when I compile (no ./configure and no make
install for this) and no errors when installing the rpm.

Any suggestions on what to look at in the tarball files to see if this
can be fixed?  Or maybe rolling back my GTK stuff?
