[Bug 60258] Re: Ruby crashes while using gnome-art-manager

Actually, the Save dialog issues specifically (which this bug deals
with) are due to a portion of the code being thread unsafe, from what I
can tell.  Commenting "thread.new" near the Gtk::FileChooserDialog fixes
the problem.  From my testing, this causes no other side effects.  I
will be posting a patch for Feisty and Gutsy for this problem.

Even after this, there are a lot of very obvious problems with gnome-
art.  Should these be in another patch?  I have summarized them:

gnome-art Feisty:

- Signal issues (GRClosure, Ruby-GNOME2)
-- Breaks all functions after the user chooses once to download backgrounds, themes, etc
-- Even File->Quit doesn't work after one theme section download
- Save dialog doesn't remember last location (Ruby-GNOME2)
- Save dialog SIGSEGV (thread-unsafe function?)
- About dialog 'Close' button is broken
- Download progress window is cut off with some DPIs

gnome-art Gutsy:

- Save dialog SIGSEGV (thread-unsafe function?)
- Install doesn't work (new gnome method of installing themes)
- About dialog 'Close' button is broken
- Download progress window is cut off with some DPIs
