Thanks, I pushed it now.

Yes, it turns out acquiring Glib context is thread-safe (it uses a
mutex internally), so only one thread can ever acquire it.  Not
calling Glib functions when we failed to acquire context avoids both
the crashes in Glib and calling block_input/unblock_input from more
than one thread.

I guess we can now close this bug?

Thanks so much for your help in debugging this.
