Drew and Ovidiu, you have both been very helpful by explaining to me
that I needed c-strings AND by pointing out that Glib::ustring has this
function itself. In other words, no coding needed to do the conversion
myself. The solution was there all along.
You guys have no idea how happy this made me. Thank you very much! :))
