You can turn off GtkObject cast checking by defining GTK_NO_CHECK_CASTS
when building the application.  I am not sure of the performance
difference though.

You can also disable assertions by defining G_DISABLE_CHECKS.  These two
will turn off a lot of the checks, and will result in some speed up.

However, in a lot of cases if there is a bug in your code, rather than
spitting out a warning, it will just segfault, so I am not sure if it is
best to turn off these checks.
