I decided to close yum down after over 1 hour. No response in terminal, so clicked on x in upper right corner of terminal, then log out and shut down computer. Started it again, brought up terminal, retried yum update, and it completed. The gtk2 app wasn't included in update list, though. Will have to wait until problems show up, I guess. Are there yum logs to review for update activity, or where does yum store verbose logs?

I suggest you manually download the gtk2 RPM (For i386: [1], x86_64:
[2]) and manually install it on you machine using:
$ rpm -Uvh --force file.rpm
Care to explain the logic behind your suggestion? It would seem as if the OP's problem no longer exists and that gtk2 has been updated. In lieu of any existing problem what indicates your suggested procedure?

The GTK2 update might have contained a number of security updates; while
having a broken update will not cause any visible corruption, it may
leave the machine open for an attack.

Do you think running "rpm -V" on the gtk2 package would be a good idea first?

Plus, In all my years with RPM-based Linuxes, I've yet to see RPM --Uvh
--force fail and/or corrupt the system.

Machines that have broken down will work perfectly when the repairman arrives.
