Using Wing's private gtk is safer overall, except you'll need to 
use the fixed run-wing.sh I provided.

Our general intention is that Wing "just works" and the only way 
to do that safely is with a private GTK.  We've allowed users to 
run with the system GTK because it often works and matches Wing's 
look better to the system.  However, it can crash in ways that 
are hard for us to control.
