Gotcha. One other related question: In the examples, I somewhere found 
the notion

     Gtk2::Helper->add_watch(fileno(READHANDLE), 'in', \&callback);

instead of

     Glib::IO->add_watch(fileno(\*READHANDLE), 'in', \&callback);

Are these equivalent or do you prefer one or the other?

Don't ask others what they prefer. Ask yourself what you prefer.
Operationaly, they are completely equivalent.
