[anjuta] stuck on summary page when creating a new project

Screenshot of the summary page of a new project
Description of problem:
When creating new project with anjuta, the screen after choosing the project type is an empty summary window which does neither allow to enter anything nor to proceed. It is only possible to cancel the operation altogether or to step back.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose the type (e.g. C generic minimal) of a new project in anjuta and proceed.
Summary screen is displayed without the possibility to do anything but cancel or step back.
Anjuta launches the IDE for further action.
According to an old anjuta tutorial one would rather expect to be asked to enter basic information and project options before proceeding to the summary page where this data then is displayed. These two steps seem to be omitted in the current release.
Bug was originally reported at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1269451 .
Which version of autogen do you have?
Can you try with autogen 5.18.3?
Installed version is autogen 5.18.6 - any reason to think this does not work?
Yes, the content of the page is generated with this program.
You can make a test by launching Anjuta, and try to create a project. When you are on the first empty page after selecting the project type, you should have in your temporary directory (/tmp here) 2 files named NPWTPL* and NPWDEF*
These are the file used by autogen to generate the page content. You can pass them through autogen using the following command line:
autogen -L /usr/share/anjuta/templates -T NPWTPL* NPWDEF* output.txt
You can check if both autogen 5.18.6 and 5.18.3 give the same output or attach the 3 files NPWTPL* NPWDEF* and output.txt here and I will check if I get the same result.
- Downgrading to autogen 5.18.3 on a Fedora 23 system has no effect; the next page displayed after selecting the project type is the summary page, and the two files NPWTPL* NPWDEF* do not even get created.
- Creating a new project with anjuta 3.16.0 and autogen 5.18.4 on a Fedora 22 system works as expected.

Thank for doing all those tests. Then, it's perhaps due to changes in Gtk 3.18, I will try to check this, this week end.
It seems to be due to this change in Gtk

This is due to a bug in Gtk+.
It is fixed in the master and the 3.18 branch so it should be solved in the next Gtk release. 3.18.3.
