It's almost certainly a bug in gcj - but catching an exception can't hurt much 
even if it's caused by a buggy lib.

In the classpath source (http://www.gnu.org/software/classpath/), the GTK peer 
is in the gnu/java/awt/peer/gtk, resource/gnu/java/awt/peer/gtk, 
native/jni/gtk-peer and could be used as a starting point.

I just found out one of the Kaffe guys is working on a Qt peer already (and 
says pretty much everything in the GTK peer is done wrong, so maybe it's not 
as good a starting point as it may look), but hasn't released any code yet.

I'll add another reply on the thread when I know more/have the code.
