Mm already replied to you before reading this, but anyway, this is a 
bad implementation and not how threads should be used in Gtk.

I'd say use g_idle's and use a normal prio for the first tab and 
normal_idle for the other tabs. That way you have no problems with 
thread/locking issues and still gives the impression things are loaded
