Glade/Libglade question

I've recently been playing around with glade and libglade to see just 
how quickly one *can* develop an interface, and I must say that I'm 
impressed, particularly with the concept behind libglade.  I've run 
into a slight problem, though, in translating the examples to new 

Specifically, the examples included in the libglade-0.7 distribution 
(for example, show the ability to connect one dialog 
box to a signal emitted by another interface element.  For example, 
in, selecting the Help | About menu item pops up the 
AboutDialog dialog box.

I can see where that is indicated in the XML file, but I can't figure 
out how to do that in glade itself: on the Signals tab, I can connect 
the menu item's activate signal to the gtk_widget_show handler, but I 
don't see any way to indicate what object should be the argument.

Obviously, I could edit the glade file by hand, but that seems to 
defeat the purpose of a UI builder.  Any ideas?  (I'm using glade 
0.5.3 and libglade 0.7, from gurulabs rpm's).

Thanks for any help.
