Re: Threads and main-loops

Thanks, is clearer now. I needed to have a mental model (i think visual)

    Note that you can create multiple threads and run GMainLoops in each
thread, but its a little tricky.

Functions which create and manipulate event sources under the hood
need to be avoided (i.e. g_timeout_add, g_idle_add, g_io_add_watch) as
they assume the default GMainContext (which is OK if you intend to queue
events to the default GMainLoop from another thread), instead; you would
need to use the slightly more complex varients (i.e. g_idle_source_new
in conjunction with g_source_attatch et al).
