GNU Emacs/GLib filling up ~/.xsession-errors with 42GB of warnings

This just happened to me again: GNU Emacs¹ filled up my root-partition
by writing 42GB of copies of this line:

  (emacs-snapshot-gtk:6008): GLib-WARNING **: g_main_context_check() called 
recursively from within a source's check() or prepare() member.

I think it was because I had an emacsclient X window open on my phone,
which lost connection when I walked the dog.

It happened once before, so I thought I would report it, as it severely
cripples the system it happens to when the filesystem is filled up.

>From Googling I can see that the answer to people who hit this usually
is "Don't use GTK, use Lucid"² - so I guess I have to talk Romain
Francoise into creating another set of snapshot packages³.

Or is there a way to turn off those warnings, or some other clever
workaround I can employ?

  Best regards,
