I red the gtk_threads html page. I put the pair gdk_threads_enter() /

void signalhandler (int signum)

      waitpid ( -1, &status, WNOHANG );

The *only* thing you are allowed to do in a signal handler is call a
very limited set of C library functions. You certainly can't make
GTK+ calls from a signal handler.

You might want to use the "child watch" functionality of GLib.
