No. If you have to use that, something is truly broken.

Whatever code you are calling needs to use the existing in place methods
for changing threads instead of calling enter and leave, as these do
have their own issues (go look at the gdk docs for examples).

At least, that is my understanding. Lluis may be able to give you better
