gio async usage from gtk+ ...

Hi guys,

	I was just digging into a libreoffice assertion failure when using the
gtk+ file selector:

Gtk:ERROR:gtkfilesystemmodel.c:746:gtk_file_system_model_sort: assertion
failed: (r == n_visible_rows)

	which looked to me, like it could well be a thread related issue; in
particular since I'm browsing a 'busy' directory (ie. /tmp/ that my
compilation is thrashing small files into and out of, no doubt creating
thrash on the model too[1]).

	I had a dig around in gtk/gtkfilesystemmodel.c on gtk-2-24 (I assume
that is the last stable branch before 3.0), to see how threading is
supposed to work; my trace is something like:

#2  0xb7c8c140 in abort () from /lib/
#3  0xb401de52 in g_assertion_message (domain=0xb454df3b "Gtk", file=0xb45647f6 "gtkfilesystemmodel.c", line=746, func=0xb4564a84 "gtk_file_system_model_sort",

#16 0x8557e8d4 in ?? () from /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/../basis-link/program/

	And I wonder where the GDK_THREADS_ENTER / GDK_THREADS_LEAVE that we
need when entering from an idle handler is.

	Presumably this is necessary for every '_async' callback that occurs
[ and lets hope they are 100% called from the idle handler, and not
sometimes for error conditions in-line ;-]. 

	And I was wondering: que ? there are ~24 of these '_async (' matches in
gtk+, and of the few I spot-checked, none take the lock; feature or
bug ?



[1] - the file change handling FWIW is horribly inefficient, and once
you have saved-as a /tmp file, life is really bad for your app (it goes
away for long periods) for ever after if you start doing things actively
in /tmp; at least for me of course ;-)
