Package: gtk2-engines-oxygen
Version: 1.2.4-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

after choosing the oxygen style for GTK2 applications, emacs no longer starts.
The process hangs before opening the window.

While debugging the issue, I read somewhere that GTK styles using C++ sometimes
cause mysterious issues caused e.g. by mismatching libstdc++ versions within
the same application. QtCurve shows the same symptoms, so this may well be that
the cause of the problem. Furthermore, this started happening about the same
time as I updated libc to 2.17 from unstable (I have a testing system
otherwise). I recompiled the package on my system, but that did not change

I am not sure whether this is a duplicate of #704883 as emacs always hangs
here, not just when opening a file inside a git repository.

Kind regards
