Need help with g_main_context_iteration() and SIGCHLD


I have an application I have written that uses g_main_context_iteration() in the code, and it also uses fork() to spawn child processes on multicore processor machines. Recently (within perhaps the last month) it freezes when it runs multi-threaded, because a SIGCHLD signal is received when g_main_context_iteration() is called in the code. Previously SIGCHLD was received only when one of the apps child processes exited.

Has there been any change in GTK2 so that calling g_main_context_iteration() now generates a SIGCHLD signal? If so what might be the best way to deal with this problem?
