exit() *does* terminate the program no matter what loop or whatever it
might be running.

So, most likely, you think your code calls exit() at some point but that
actually never happens.

The program might get stuck in the finalisation phase if some exit
handler (e.g. atexit()-registered) or finaliser gets stuck but I suppose
if you were registering such things you (a) would have told us (b) did
not wonder what happened.


P.S.: Calling exit() while within the Gtk+ main loop is a bit harsh.
Normally one calls gtk_main_quit() and the program continues execution
after gtk_main() â which typically means it then reaches the end of
main() and terminates.
