well, i gave up on having two seperate files and stuck both my windows
onto a single .glade file.

same error. i remarked out all my other code. the only thing left is the
basic call:

  g1 = GladeXML.new('logonandsearch.glade') { |handler_name|
     ...
  }
  Gtk::main

i even tried changing one of my windows to a dialog, so that they
weren't both toplevel windows. no good. still:

(eval):13:in 'doConnect': undefined method 'arity' for nil (NameError)

is there a bug with ruby/libglade?
