Does GIO count? Off the top of my head:

 * GDBusInterfaceSkeleton::g-authorize-method
 * GCancellable::cancelled (when used with a sync function)

... and I'm pretty sure there's more ...

i don't know if these are handled in the main event loop always, or by default, or never. my guess would be that in most cases they would be handled by the main event loop (thread), and so there is no issue (or a very different issure)

but again, i direct your attention back to the title of the thread. this is not about "can you use threads with glib or gdk or gobject signals?". it is specifically about removing explicit thread synchronization from GDK ...
