I think this is a missing translation. Unfortunately, I don't know if this is an
upstream bug or a problem of arch's packaging, but the guys at
didn't seem to be awake when I tried asking.

Steps to reproduce:

import gi
gi.require_version('Gtk', '3.0')
from gi.repository import Gtk
hBox = Gtk.HBox()
button = Gtk.RadioButton()
hBox.pack_start(button, False, False, 0)
hBox.child_get_property(button, "expand")

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 5, in <module>
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gi/", line 44, in function
return info.invoke(*args)
TypeError: child_get_property() takes exactly 4 argument(s) (3 given)

The last argument is "value" in the C library and takes a pointer where to store
the result of the operation. In the python translation, this value should be
returned instead.
This task depends upon
