[Gtk-sharp-list] Widgets not updating

Hi Sebastian,

I do not manually start any threads in the code.

When the program starts I simply create a new object (the main client
object) and run both Application.Init(), and then som initialization
like glade-stuff, and then Application.Rudh(). Then the client is idle
until the user clicks a connect button. From the method that is called
by the click a call another metod that is the listener method, and there
I wait for new messages on the socket.

I tried to manually create a new thread in the click-receiving method
and send that to the listening method, but that didn't make any

Thanks for the help,
