But... any idea why it not works?
Thread safety problems.
Gtk2 has some thread safety, but alot depends on the code you are not showing.
Show a complete example that runs so we can test it, that shows your error.
There are a few examples of proper thread usage in the archives and on groups.google.com
if you search for "Gtk2 threads".
But each script can need a different approach with threads.... sometimes
the thread->Enter and $thread->Leave will work, but the best approach
is to put a Glib::Idle->add() in the thread to update widgets.
I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth.
