Thanks to this fix, I got a little further.

OTOH, I have the feeling this is more of a workaround than a fix.  It 
makes the rules even more complicated than before.  With this fix, if you 
were to set up the pipeline and set it to playing, then iterate in the 
gthread, it would fail again ?

Is it at all possible to fully abstract away the use of threads so that it 
can work in all cases ? This probably would involve switching to a totally 
different thread.  I want to know if it's possible at all, and if it's 
not, shouldn't we revert this fix and make it very obvious (in the docs) 
that this behaviour is not supported ?
