[gtkmm] once again : problems with "refreshing the screen"

Hi folks,

In the attached sourcecode i have a progressbar which i use in
"pulse-modus". Everything works fine, but you only see the bar animate
when i focus and unfocus the applicationwindow. Otherwise nothing

queu_draw() doesn't seem to work..

I've encountered this problem more often, when iam updating a statusbar,
a label, and so on...

Hopefully someone knows the trick.

void * thread( Gtk::ProgressBar * pb )
	while ( 1 ) {
		pb->pulse(); usleep(20000);//20 millisecs
		//something here to opdate te screen....

class PreMatrix : public Gtk::Window

Gtk::VBox vbox1;
Gtk::Button knp_start;
Gtk::ProgressBar pb;

//signal handlers
void knp_start_clicked()
	pthread_t t;
	pthread_create( &t, NULL, thread, &pb );

	vbox1.pack_start( pb ); pb.pulse();
	knp_start.set_label( "Start!" );
	knp_start.signal_clicked().connect(SigC::slot(*this, &PreMatrix::knp_start_clicked) );
	vbox1.pack_start( knp_start );
	add( vbox1 );


int main( int argc, char * argv[] )
	Gtk::Main kit( argc, argv );
	PreMatrix prematrix;
	kit.run( prematrix );
