a good approach might be:

* start the program an immediately create the splash screen, and install
an idle handler
* do all initialization and start GTK main loop
* when the idle callback is called, create the main window and destroy
the spash screen.

If that's too quick, and the splash screen is shown and destroyed too
quickly, you can use a timer instead of the idle handler.
