As some widgets do not implement properties for all
required properties. This section documents some of the
exceptions built into libglade's logic.
The following properties have custom handlers in libglade.
Most of these will probably become real properties in GTK+
GtkWidget::visible is handled
specially so that it gets applied after children have been
added. This works around some sizing bugs in certain
widgets (and is the same behaviour libglade-0.x had).
tooltips for the widget. The property value is the tooltip

which menu item index in the list should be selected
GtkTextView::text offers an

it is a GtkImageMenuItem). These properties act similarly
to the identically named GtkButton
There are custom handlers for a number of deprecated
widgets, and deprecated settings for some widgets. These most
likely won't be converted to real properties in the
future. These include:
