That is the right solution if all of Webkit is supposed to be inside gdk
lock. Is this the case?
At the moment signals on WebKitWebView are also coming without a lock,
Presumably that the same issue.
If all of Webkit is supposed to be locked, then apart from fixing the
code it I think it also needs to be clarified in the
documentation. Peeking at random, does a call
webkit_network_request_get_uri needs to be inside GDK lock? We lock
around all such calls, but it is not obvious from the documentation.
