Followup of fix "8 second delay on logout"


Description alexxcons editbugs 2017-07-20 22:50:43 CEST
After porting thunar to gtk3, when in daemon mode (thunar --daemon)  a delay of 8 sec. on logout can be observed.
The delay seems to comes from the usage of g_application_hold().
If g_application_release()  is executed before logout, the delay disappears.

Possibly this is a bug in gtk3 .. however till now I was not able to reproduce it on a simple application.

For now the bug got fixed by using  "g_unix_signal_add" in order to trigger on SIGHUP. The handler than calls g_application_release() .
However that's not a very clean solution, since it works for unix-only ( actually it would be nice to not handle any system-signals at all )

The following investigations could be done:
- slowly minimize thunar and check on each step if the bug disappears, in order to create a minimal setup on which the bug occurs .. so we could clearly name the reason.
- check if we could possibly subscribe to a dbus-signal instead of a system-signal (see discussion on github )  in order to trigger a handler on logout
