Sorry- this thread has gotten complicated.
At the moment, I'm not using threads. However, in earlier versions of
the program I was using a thread to process popen() to grab the target
Now that the target app is using logging, popen() doesn't work (wont
catch the output).
So currently, I'm not using threads or popen. I'm using the ugly hack
which does an exec, which was recently posted- as a work around not
being able to catch the output of the logger.

With your reply in mind- If I need to use threads, I will probably use
However, I don't know what signal to use in your example.
Are you suggesting I create an arbitrary signal- not assoicated with
any particular widget?
