Good. This is what I need. Thanks!

In the thread that normally runs g_main_loop_run(), use instead:

   while (<keep running>) {
       g_main_context_iteration(NULL, TRUE); /* block */
       <your idle code here>

Because g_main_context_iteration() is allowed to block when there is
nothing to do, you avoid the 100% CPU consumption. If there was
something to do, your code gets called.
