As my long weekend plans were dashed by Time Life, I did not get Medusa's GUI fully working. I did refactor the UI to behave better, and added the missing menu of available emblems. I surprised that the emblem's image does not display in the GtkOoptionMenu, but does show in the GtkMenu when I select it. I'm not sure if this is a GTK2 behavior. Images do show in the GTK GtkOptionMenu hidden in Nautilus.
I'll add the query this week. I think I'll have a working app next week after I have added created the results list.
