use gtk's timer mechanism?
Last modified: 2006-05-12 18:56:16 UTC
The current underlying timer_create mechanism is showing two problems:
- when the gui gets bogged down multiple timer events (and their threads) end up
running simultaneously (which just makes the problem worse)
- GCJ is struggling with these timers (a fix is comming but just avoiding them
would be nicer)
Can the relevant C code instead directly use gtk's timers?
Fixed on 2006-02-23 by replacing timer_*() fcns and associated signal handling
