GTK3, deprecated window.get_pointer() raises exception


recently I tried porting an application to GTK3

using Ruby 2.0 and ruby-gnome2-2.1.0 shipped with Gentoo-Linux (AMD64)
in default configuration.

Basically it works fine, I got some warnings about deprecated stuff
which I fixed.

Unfortunately use of deprecated Gtk::Widget#pointer raised an exception.

/usr/lib64/ruby/site_ruby/2.0.0/glib2/deprecatable.rb:136:in block in __define_deprecated_method__': pet/peted.rb:588:indistribute_events’:
‘Gtk::Widget#pointer’ has been deprecated. Use

It doesn’t seem like there’s anything wrong with using the deprecated

methods, then. File a bug with the Ruby GTK3 bindings, and continue
window.get_pointer(); for now would be my suggestion.

Deprecated methods should not raise an exception. Deprecated methods
shouldn’t stop working because they’re deprecated.

it is difficult to avoid window.get_pointer() when keyboard input for
CAD applications require mouse coordinates. GTK-Developers consider
continuing using window.get_pointer(). So it would be nice if
Ruby-Gnome2 would not raise an exception and abort the program in
default setup.
