problems when using g_main_loop_quit from different thread

Hi everyone,

i am experiencing random problems here if i use g_main_loop_quit from a
different thread than where the GMainLoop runs.

my program looks like this:

1. in main: create a new context and a new loop
2. spawn a thread
3. call g_main_loop_run in the thread on the previously created loop
4. some time later: call g_main_loop_quit from main

whats supposed to happen (i guess) is that the main loop quits. But
sometimes the call to loop_quit just has not effect, so the main loop
continues to run.

Is this a known problem or am i doing something wrong?

Best Regards,
Armin Bauer
