[Gtk-sharp-list] glade autoconnect strangeness

I noticed some strange behavior with Glade# (libglade-cil , version

If I wire up widget references with .Autoconnect from more than one
top-level widget to a single class, the second instance seems to clobber
the mappings of the previous one. (eg: the old references are set to
"null" before the first .Autoconnect and after the second, but not after
the first.)

Am I imagining things? Or is this how it is supposed to work?

A snippit of my broken code follows:

//load winMain

//my [Glade.Widget] instanceVar is null here.

Glade.XML gxml = 
	new Glade.XML (null, "cashflow.glade", "winMain", null);
gxml.Autoconnect (this); 
//my [Glade.Widget] instanceVar is NOT null here.
//FIXME: glade clobbers old autoconnected entries on the 2nd pass...
//load winDateRange (a popup window on winMain)
//gxml = new Glade.XML (null, "cashflow.glade", "winDateRange", null);

//my [Glade.Widget] instanceVar is null here, if not used by

Thanks again,
