Hi,

Thanks, the problem got solved. The updated version can be found at
https://gist.github.com/1144708 in a comment below the original post.
Solution:

self.connect("destroy", self.quit)

def quit(self, widget):
        self.mouseThread.kill()
        gtk.main_quit()

It was not evident that quit() must be passed the argument "widget" too.

Thanks,

Laszlo
