However, what I was talking about was a *GTK* signal, and I believe
the whole idea of GTK is that you can, and have to, do very much
inside *GTK* signal handlers.
But anyway, to offer a further data point to my issue at hand: my
app worked fine with GNU pth. I'm also going to try on Linux today,
and see if it works there.
(Without really looking at any code expect my own, a wild guess based:
do recursive mutexes work as expected?)
