	You also need to drop locks before doing things eg.

	gdk_threads_leave ();
	do_some_gtk_call ();
	gdk_threads_enter ();

	eg. in signal handlers, and such like - but it very much depends if the
signal is emitted from the Gtk mainloop, or explicitly from another
source, if from another source then depending on whether you're in a
mainloop you need to lock,unlock or unlock,lock in a not altogether
clear fashion.

	In short I'd avoid threads & Gtk+ like the plague.
