I guess that not allowing of -lpthread in any glib/gtk modules would be
a strong (and unpredictable) limitation. Imagine that module works with
foo-1.1 but you cannot upgrade to foo-1.2, just because version 1.2
started to use threads.

I met described gdb problem while trying to debug gtk application in an
environment with libcanberra-gtk-module loaded by default (openSUSE

Michael Meeks could know more about the interposing and maybe propose
beter fix for gmodule, gtk or gio.

I think that gmodule-2.0.pc is the best place to add needed fix, as
loading of threaded modules is the main originator of all these
