Warning - I tried the gtk2 port a while back and it promptly crashed
everytime it attempted to fetch mail or retrieve newsgroup postings -
not really a very good situation for a *mail* client to get itself into!
I might try with the latest version when I get time but for now I've
just had to make do with gtk1.  I'm also running xmms!  Time to give
beep a try here and then like you, I can hopefully rid myself of gtk1!
