"Comment by: bjorn on 20070630 [10:37:27]
This bug needs patching of either ruby-art or ruby-libglade. Since ruby-art is no longer maintained, so somebody could try to file a bug report against ruby-libglade. One way to fix the problem is by inserting the following at line 103 in libglade2.rb (at the start of the "guard_source_from_gc" method):

return if source == nil

But I have no way of knowing whether this will have any unwanted side effects or whether it may be a good idea to check it for nil."

This task depends upon

This has been fixed in the latest svn of ruby-libglade.

Sorry.. I figured since their PKGBUILDS were in the AUR, my mistake.
