Hello Anthony, Hello Peter,

what about my patch for the issue 6913179?
Did you start the review?

I report again the most relevant changes:
 1. Dynamic link to libgthread-2.0.so.0 instead of libgthread-2.0.so
 2. GTK multithread support (gdk_threads_enter() and
gdk_threads_leave() as outlined by Damjan)
 3. New Thread to don't block the EDT
 4. Support for multiple file selection (bugs 6705345)

Best regards,
