On FreeBSD there is a problem with the new version of glib:
$ svn log -r 393663 /usr/ports/devel/glib20
r393663 | kwm | 2015-08-06 18:14:42 +0200 (czw) | 6 linii

Disable kqueue for now, so we can take our time finding out what is up
with the file/directory monitoring code. And people can use there
Gtk based programs again.

File managers such as caja, pcmanfm or thunar cannot refresh icons. So
one has to manually press F5 to refresh what is in a directory. Also the
Trash doesn't work -- there is no any files in the trash visible but
files are present under ~/.local/share/Trash/files/.

The solution is to downgrade glib to 383107 revision:
# cd /usr/ports
# svn up -r 383107
# portupgrade -f glib glib-networking glibmm

but this causes problems if an application wants a new glib library, for
example compiling libre office I get:
Package 'gio-2.0' has version '2.42.2', required version is '>= 2.43.4'
configure:34015: error: gtk3 libraries of the correct versions, not found

Is there any progress on fixing glib?
