The function gtk_cell_accessible_parent_get_row_header_cells is present in the introspection file /usr/share/gir-1.0/Gtk-3.0.gir, but is not present in /usr/lib/ as per"nm -D /usr/lib/ | grep gtk_cell_accessible_parent_get_row_header_cells"

That was reported on the upstream OpenSUSE gtk3 package at

This is causing the AUR taffybar build to fail with "undefined symbol: gtk_cell_accessible_parent_get_row_header_cells)"

I'm guessing this started happening with gtk3 version 3.24.3 (the current package version).
This task depends upon

I edited that /usr/share/gir-1.0/Gtk-3.0.gir file to remove references to get_row_header_cells and get_column_header_cells, and things seem to work, now. It's an .xml file.

The same issue exists for deadd-notification-center:

As a workaround, I made a xslt stylesheet for editing that .girl file and removing references to get_row_header_cells and get_column_header_cells:
xsltproc gtk_patch.xslt /usr/share/gir-1.0/Gtk-3.0.gir > out.xml
sudo cp out.xml /usr/share/gir-1.0/Gtk-3.0.gir

I believe this is fixed in gtk3-3.24.7+25+g17665f06e3-1. Seemed to have cleared my Haskell GI at least.
