Just in case anyone here is interested, I filed RH bug #973277 ( https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=973277).

Thanks very much for clarifying this to me! For some reason I got confused and missed the fact that glade-3 was targeted to GTK2. With the glade-3.14.2-2 package I was able to edit the UI XMLs without issues.Is this a known issue or am I using the "wrong" version of glade3? It seems that the experience with glade varies a lot depending on the version being used...I'm not sure how gtk3 packages are and should be labeled in fedora, but it looks like the 3.8.3 version is gtk2 (despite the fact that it is called 'glade3' or 'glade-3') and normal version 3.14.2 in this package: glade-3.14.2-2.fc18.x86_64 is gtk3. You can use this to edit the GUI and it will work.
However I have no idea why it is packaged this way. I'll try to find out. Have a nice day, Martin
