Please see http://live.gnome.org/Maemo/Gtk210Migration#M24

In general it's a good idea to run hildon-audit in your code, it should
point out all these issues

See http://live.gnome.org/Hildon/TwoPointZero for a general overview of
the changes.

Btw, I think 2 out of 3 of your problems have been deprecated since Bora
at least :)
