I would try to remove the "while (Gtk2->events_pending()) {Gtk2->main_iteration();}", it is a waste of memory/stack recursion and CPU. repeat_call is called from a 10 ms timer, from the event loop. When repeat_call returns, more events will run automatically. "while (Gtk2->events_pending()) {Gtk2->main_iteration();}" is to make the app responsive when doing CPU intensive data processing in a single thread. It isn't for generic eventloops running (which is Gtk2->main();). By putting "while (Gtk2->events_pending()) {Gtk2->main_iteration();}" in an event handler, you basically wrote
sub foo { #process the event if(rand() > 0.5) { foo(); } } foo();
0.5 might be anywhere from 0.001 to 0.9. IDK what it will be in your app. Never do something with recursion when it can be processed with a loop. You will blow the stack of whatever language you are using. Perl might, but no guarantee of it doing this, give you a "Deep recursion on subroutine "%s"" warning, see Deep recursion on subroutine "%s".

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
