     it wont bother crashing ;-)

Note that it's standard practice in GTK+ to ignore function params,
a typical example is somthing like:

g_signal_connect_swapped (G_OBJECT (quit_button), "clicked",
                           G_CALLBACK (gtk_widget_destroy),
                           (gpointer) main_window);

Pretty hardcore, but efficient.


Note also that all object implementations have signal
handlers which omit the last "NULL" argument, that argument
is only used "user_data" arguments to g_signal_connect ().
