[Gtk-sharp-list] GUI hangs

All of your calls to Gtk# have to be from your main thread. I believe
even the timer callbacks will not be on your main thread. There are a
couple of ways around this but I personally have found that ThreadNotify
works the best.
Another option with Gtk# is to use Gtk.Timeout. Basically it will call
back your main thread in the specified number of seconds. Very handy
for updating UI at a specified interval.
