Problem with imshow in opencv 2.4.5 and ubuntu 13.04

I just updated to ubuntu 13.04 and I'm having problems running opencv 2.4.5. I first built opencv with Qt support and I was able to see windows pop up but no image was being displayed. I then rebuilt opencv with just gtk and I am now unable to see any window screens pop up or display images. For reference, here are the parameters CMake output during the building of makefiles.

I am at a loss and I'm not sure what I'm missing and why I'm not getting some form of an error message from OpenCV.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
