If I understand correctly, I tried something like that once too, using
something like the example from the manual:

  while (gtk_events_pending ())
      gtk_main_iteration ();

The problem I ran into was that I ended up running random stuff half way
though my function, which was a nightmare to figure out. For example,
what if if the use clicks the close button during that main loop and
destroys the GUI.. then the while loop exists and I'm half way though a
function with a bunch of dead widgets.

I think that's pretty much what gtk_dialog_run does though, but I don't
think I've ever used that function.
