Please post a failing sample program if you can.

That's meant to be unnecessary, the glib threads hooks stuff is
supposed to be initialized so the "select"s within gtk-main (etc) will
cooperate with the guile threading.

If you're using the loop above then you may need to check the return
value from gtk-main-iteration, I think it tells you when to stop
looping (because gtk-main-quit has been called).
