Alright, so I dropped the timeline for now, working to get a simple UI to at 
least show up, without the timeline support; now I have a segfault 
(wonderful!) in the which pyclutter calls. I'm not sure how to get 
a useful backtrace out of this from python code, unfortunately.

What follows is my code:

window is created in the method that calls this constructor, it's a fresh 
window with only called on it.

def __init__(self,window):
        self.window = window
        embed = cluttergtk.Embed()
        fedoraLogoActor = clutter.Texture("../data/fedora-tour-splash.svg")
        stage = embed.get_stage()

the pdb trace tells me that the segfault occurs at self.window.show_all()... 
Any ideas/guidance would be MUCH appreciated :) thanks
