There are very, very few apps that come with per-app GTK RC files.
In my/our case, Ardour (http://ardour.org/) specifically works to try
to prevent loading ANY other RC files except the one it comes with.
So yes, you are not the first to run into it, but you are among a very
small number of people to do so, and likely most of us have just
worked around it.
