in reply to Re^2: Second background process is pausing the guiin thread Second background process is pausing the gui
I don't see that on my system.
I did replace the second shell command with xterm -e htop and it
did pop up a new xterm running htop while still filling in the first text widget, exactly as expected.
Interestingly, when I click into the area to be filled, the application responds, but it immediately gets stuck again.
Best guess so far: you are dumping (hundreds of)? thousands of lines into the text widget. This is what is taking time.
Sort of confirmed, instead of just 'find' try
q( find / 2>/dev/null | perl -pe '$| = 1; select undef, undef, undef,
