  GTK apps crashing with "Attempt to unlock mutex that was not locked"

Status in “gtk+2.0” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in “gtk+2.0” package in Debian:

Bug description:
  Attempting to run some GTK apps (e.g. pyrenamer) on 14.10 results in
  an immediate crash, with the message "Attempt to unlock mutex that was
  not locked".

  https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=735428 seems to be the
  relevant upstream bug, and there is a patch here:

  To some extent, this seems to be the result of individual projects
  using GTK incorrectly, and some fixes have been made to those
  individual projects.

  *However*, I am also seeing this bug occur in a closed source third
  party application, Stata 13. As Emmanuele Bassi mentions in the Gnome
  bug thread, there are probably a lot of applications out in the wild
  affected by the same issue, that in some cases cannot be fixed, so it
  would be good if a fix could be included in the versions of GTK that
  Ubuntu ships.
