The problem is not in GDK but how GTK/GDK is used by SWT.  

I just think there should be no user-visible server-state.  With a
stateful server one must introduce some clever tricks to avoid
round-trips. But these tricks do not help if the user does not
cooperate.  For example if the user asks a question before the
widget-tree is created (or re-configured) you have no other possibility
but to flush the queue and block for the reply.
