Similar behavior in Dictionary 2.4.0 as well; on my system it appears
to be stuck in:

#0  0x40932f32 in loser_poll () from /lib/libc.so.6
#1  0x40814c96 in g_main_loop_get_context () from
#2  0x40814034 in g_main_context_dispatch () from
#3  0x408147cf in g_main_loop_run () from /usr/lib/libglib-2.0.so.0
#4  0x403e643f in gtk_main () from /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0
#5  0x08057294 in main ()
#6  0x4086fd06 in __libc_start_main () from /lib/libc.so.6

I have broken into it at various end points, but the backtrace always
includes through g_main_context_dispatch().
