Yes, I should have been clearer, I meant a backtrace that caught where
spellcheck was looping (for Enrico's benefit).  As you say this doesn't.

Spellcheck shouldn't be in a different thread to the UI, and the bt seems
to be the main thread, but maybe you are right and this isn't the main
thread.  Looking at all the threads should show that.

Or maybe spellcheck is doing something that causes glib to go into a
polling loop, or maybe ctrl-c wasn't typed fast enough to catch it still in
slow mode.

Thats enough speculative possibilities for now. :) Lets hope it can be
