As my program needs a few seconds to start, I would like to display a

Looks pretty simple, but for some reason the popup shows up empty, and I 
can't figure out what I've done wrong.

to borrow the phrase from those damn kids today: you're doing it wrong.

sleep 10;

do not *ever* call a blocking function when using a mainloop-based
toolkit like gtk+.

*any* blocking call will prevent the main loop to spin, which will
prevent redraw operations and event handling from ever happening.
