The pointer is the one you got with gps_set_callback, so you can just
ignore the fact that it is a pthread_t pointer and all this thread that
went ballistic on that:

	static extern int gps_set_callback (IntPtr gps_data, GpsCallback cb, out IntPtr handler);


	IntPtr handler;
	IntPtr gps = gps_open ("localhost", "2947");
	gps_set_callback (gps, mycb, out handler);
