switch GTK font problem + Unable to locate loadable module in module_path

Hi guys,

I have tried almost everything. I am searching for more than 4 hours on google and tried too many suggestions without any luck.

I am trying to configure via switch some large ugly fonts under Gnome on Debian Sarge and I am always getting the following error without be able to save my settings:

:~$ switch

Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate loadable module in module_path: "",

Gtk-CRITICAL **: file gtkentry.c: line 440 (gtk_entry_set_text): assertion `text != NULL' failed.

Under KDE the above command is working fine. switch2 is working fine as well.
I create an empty ~/.gtkrc.mine and add the following to my ~/.gtkrc file:
:~$ cat ~/.gtkrc
include "/usr/share/themes/DebianRed/gtk/gtkrc"

include "/home/myuser/.gtkrc.mine"
