Re: Multhithreading internals in GTK+

I did see this behavior when I instrumented Gedit with PIN. Whenever there is a dialog box spawned, there are thread spawned. The behavior is random, and moreover I don't think I used any GFS. It was on a VM running Ubuntu.

Any intuitions why this is happening?

I am trying to understand the internals of threading in GTK+-2.0. From my understanding there are threads generated with GTK+ functions (ex. Opening a
file-dialog) even without explicit  threading.

That's not correct. Gtk+ is a single-threaded system with an event loop.

That's not true for things that involve GFS. The file dialog does
indeed create its own threads, mostly because of the implementation of

Other than that, what John said is true.
