We have been able to reproduce this in about 1 out of 15 tries... it's a timing issue inside gtk, so I hope it's at least that intermittent for you also. The problem is caused by our semi-incorrect use of nested gtk mainloop() calls, something we already knew about and plan to fix in the next beta (but unfortunately isn't a quick fix). Since you're using gtk also, be warned that calling gtk.mainloop() more than once is bad. Although seen in many gtk examples, it is really just a great way to add some bugs to your program! > There's probably a conflict or something.
