Ok, just to please you I set *prop_type to GDK_NONE and *prop_format to
8 (sic) in case of failure.

You should bear in mind that the round-trip happens as a rule. It is now
avoided in case of failure. So in case you want to call
gdk_selection_property_get in a hit-and-miss loop, your code should be
almost twice as fast.
