What the h... are glib threads? :)  If GTK/GDK threads are anything but a
thin wrapper around pthread, then we might need to write a backend for them
and build libgcrypt-g-thread or whatever.  Theoretically it should be
sufficient to link to the gcrypt version linked to the same thread package
as glib.

If you report deadlocks, please always include a gdb backtrace (bt, bt full)
and other status information (x/20i, info regs) in your report.
