Dear all, I have just upgraded my GTK development platform from V1.3.9 to V1.3.14 and am having a slight problem with the file-selection dialog. Having read the release notes for all the releases in between those two, I saw from the V1.3.10 release that I now need to call gdk_threads_init() as well as g_thread_init(NULL) at the start of my program (because I use threads) so I added it. I have always called gdk_threads_enter() and gdk_threads_leave() around my gtk_main() call. All the documentation I've read suggests that this should be sufficient. However, this seems to cause a problem when I later create a file-selection widget inside a button-press call-back. In the call-back, I use gtk_file_selection_new() to create the widget and then call gtk_widget_show() to show it. The problem is that gtk_widget_show() never returns. If I remove the call to gdk_threads_init() at the start of my program, everything appears to work okay. Also, everything is okay if I create a simple modal dialog with gtk_message_dialog_new() instead of the file-selection dialog. Am I doing something stupid, or is this a known problem? When building the libraries, I used "./configure --with-libiconv --with-threads=posix" for GLIB and simply "./configure" for everything else (Pango, ATK and GTK+) as I have always done for previous releases. Have I missed something? I am attaching a simple test program which illustrates my problem. I would be grateful for any suggestions, Richard Warren.
