Well, that the problem - as one user, that's why I'm saying a WONTFIX is
likely. The ticket is #784.

Well, technically, GtkBuilder was *created* to deprecate libglade.
When it was introduced in gtk+ 2.16, a few features were missing,
but in the meanwhile, all the useful ones are there and as pavucontrol
already uses intltool, there's no problem with translations either.
Ever since then libglade has been in bugfixes-only mode.

In such case, pavucontrol shouldn't complain so loudly about it missing,
going as far as printing debug messages in the terminal.
