Thanks, pushed.

Please do:

  (gdb) thread apply all frame 1
  (gdb) thread apply all print context_acquired

The last command will print an error for a few threads, but that's
okay.  I hope it will still print the values for the 48 threads that
are waiting inside xg_select.  If not, I will have to ask you to do
that manually, like this:

  (gdb) thread 54
  (gdb) frame 1
  (gdb) p context_acquired
  (gdb) thread 53
  (gdb) frame 1
  (gdb) p context_acquired

etc., for all of the threads that show backtrace like this:

The number 54 in the "Thread 54" part of the header is the number you
give in the GDB "thread N" command above.

The expected result of all this is that only one thread has
context_acquired set to TRUE, the rest should have it FALSE.  If that
doesn't happen, we are somehow violating the Glib protocol of using
its context for reading events, and all kinds of problems could

That patch wasn't supposed to fix those, only the one with unaligned
pointers that caused an abort in GC.
