If you extract 'small "individual" changes', please do so from attached
version of the patch.
Interesting new stuff in it is the use of Gnome::Canvas::Rect
instead of Gnome::Canvas::SimpleRect (gtk2_ardour/simplerect.h)
and a fix in gtk_custom_ruler_*:  s/GTK_OBJECT/G_OBJECT_GET_CLASS/ .
Those fixed a linker error and a runtime error. 

Does the use of Gnome::Canvas::Rect instead of SimpleRect fit the strategy?

Patch lets ardour2 show the new session dialog
(as an empty small window)
on top of the main window without crashing now.
So it can be used to exercise the new new session dialog ;-)
