Ehm, I don't remember.  But it seems easier to do now that I have asynchronous 
call-outs and CallinProcesses -- Blox-Tk's event loop is indeed less buggy 
and simpler.  Maybe you can tell gtk_main not to start the event loop, and 
then process Gtk events one at a time like it is done in Blox-Tk.

Check if you can handle Gtk events manually, before trying all this.
