Prior to updating the package I did research potential ABI breakage to
my best ability. This is what the front page of www.gtk.org has to say:
"GLib 2.14.0 is now available. This is the first in the 2.14 series,
providing new functionality compared to GLib 2.12, while maintaining
source and binary compatibility."
Anyway, please bump the ABI dependency if it's needed. Btw, I don't
understand how a gnome-vfs2 built against glib 2.12 can have a PLT
reference to something that was introduced in glib-2.13?
