[Gtk-sharp-list] Gtk.Spinner doesn't spin (Gtk# 2.99.2)

I've found the cause. I had GTK animations disabled , which is
apparently also applicable to the spin animation. After re-enabling
animations the spinner works fine.
The reason I had disabled GTK animations is that on GTK+ 3.10 the
InfoBar wasn't visible if shown directly on startup and if animations
were enabled. On GTK+ 3.8 instead, it does work okay with animations
enabled. So most likely a regression in GTK+ itself i presume?
If you want to try and run the code  make sure you install the
gschema file , to satisfy gsettings...
