GLib.MainContext.Iteration() lets one iteration of event handlers
execute, but that won't necessarily clean up *all* the pending events.
To let all pending events execute, do this:

	while (GLib.MainContext.Iteration ())

Note the empty while loop -- GLib.MainContext.Iteration() returns
whether or not there are more events pending.
