 Hi,

 doing GUI calls from more than one thread is a recipe for disaster IMHO. I
don't say that it's impossible (in fact, the threads sample in wxWindows
distribution which I (co)wrote does just this), but it's not a good idea.

 OTOH, there is no problem in having as many of worker threads as you wish and
one "main" GUI thread. This design is much more robust and easier to implement
too...
