I haven't found this.  I've written two applications in pygtk2 and one
plotting library that run with no alterations on linux and win32, and
I had no prior GTK+ experience, or any GUI experience for that matter.

As for immaturity, the gimp runs under windows, and I *think* pygtk
can do just about anything gtk can do, hence it's a pretty
sophisticated toolkit under windows.  What aspects do you find
immature?

And glade-2 is a nice RAD tool that runs under linux and win32.

Here are a couple of screenshots of a pygtk app using VTK that runs on
win32 and linux
