Calling idle callbacks without handling events
I'm the creator of a program called DreamPie, and there's one GTK bug that causes it to crash ( https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=611069
). I now found the cause of the bug and filed a patch, and I wonder if a workaround is possible, for users of current and old GTK versions.
What caused the bug is that GtkTextView uses some idle callbacks (functions called by idle_add). If an event is emitted before they are handled, the program crashes.
Is there a way to make gtk/glib process idle callbacks without handling events? If there is, I would use it after I add text to the TextView, and solve the problem.
