Description Giovanni Campagna 2013-03-16 14:30:26 UTC
Using a recursive mainloop for the default context is a bad idea in general, but it's absolutely wrong when the methods are called from a different thread, as many sources installed on the default context (such as all of Gdk/Gtk) expect to be called only from the primary thread.
