Some of the issues you mention (GTK+ changes) are already fixed in
trunk, others (the introspection ones) aren't. In any case it's always
a good idea to push the patches you do to us, tracking upstream
changes is part of our work.

I have no idea why the events are not working for you, but a trivial
example done in C works perfectly well (http://pastebin.com/U5gtbvXt).
A random guess is that you are using the wrong signal, load-finished
(on top of being deprecated) does not tell you whether the DOM has
been fully created and you might be interacting with it in a broken
state. Try 'document-load-finished'.

In the interest of fairness, DOM events were never implemented in the
original patch sent upstream, so I didn't remove anything regarding
this from there (maybe you were confused by the EventListener comment
in the new bug, this is unrelated). The support for DOM events was
done by me from scratch after the useful bits from the original patch
were merged.
