You are thinking of something like this?

struct baseclass_one {
	void * foo;
struct baseclass_sec {
	void * bar;
struct derieved {
	struct baseclass_one head;
	struct baseclass_sec member;

If you have made "struct baseclass_sec" independent, then this should solve
your problem.
You will run into problems if you wan't to cast from a "baseclass_sec"
pointer, to a "derieved" pointer, so try not to be dependent of that.

One way around this problem would be that any communication from the "second
base" to the "derieved" class should be done with gtk's signal handlers.
( Or you can do some pointer-magic :)
