bug#15801: 24.3.50; bar scrolling freezes gtk emacs

I crash Emacs built with GTK on Debian Jessie (unstable),
by performing massive scrolling using mouse and the
vertical scroll bar. Messages buffer may be used to that
or the title screen. After several movements with left
button down the scroll bar stops reacting, Emacs as well.

As I was afraid it would be difficult to reproduce
I decided to debug it. What I found out is that
sometimes wait_reading_process_output does not return
for really long time and this causes the freeze.
On the other hand the loop (inside wait_reading_process_output)
works all the time.
XTread_socket from xterm.c also is working, but not properly.
See the comment from the patch (attached):

+       // Sometimes gtk_events_pending is true, but gdk_event_handler
+       // receives nothing and does not increase the count.
+       // If we ignore these pending events, then we lock up,
+       // for example with continuos movements of vertical scroll bar.
+       if (!count) count = 1;

I don't think it's the correct patch. Rather investigation is required,
why gdk_event_handler is not increasing the count.
But I don't feel enough confident with gtk, gdk and Emacs code.
A bit tired also. Anyway I offer further help with solving
this issue, because I can easily reproduce it.

My glib is 2.36.4, libgtk-3-0: 3.8.4-1.

Revisions on which I confirmed the freeze: r113450, r114178, r114884.

Somehow htmlfontify entered the patch file, but I didn't remove
it manually.
