gnome-pie hangs up and causes 100% CPU usage #73
i have some issues with gnomepie right now and i couldnt figure out what causes this trouble ...
sometimes gnome-pie runs in some sort of deadlock and raises cpu usage to 100% and doesnt respond at all ... i have to SIGKILL the executable and when i restart everythings runs fine.
the only error i get right now is the following
[WARNING] Failed to fetch path: No such interface `org.ayatana.bamf.application' on object at path /org/ayatana/bamf/application0x1db9ae0
but i have no idea, if this has something todo with the deadlock
note: g_poll is where the program normally wait for events.
I put some prints in the code and saw that the hang occurs after the gnome-pie window is destroyed (after that, no more calls are received in the event filter function)
To generate this bug: open/close/open/close/.. "a lot" of times in a rapid series over the launcher, the auto-hide scrollbars, the screen corners, etc.

More info in case someone can figure out what's happening...
I can hang up gnome-pie in Ubuntu 14.04 64 bits with some easy (the system is up to date).
Could you please comment this line in pieRenderer.vala and confirm it could be removed?
Solved in MATE 14.04.2 (32 bits) too!! over 1000 cycles OK with this line commented out....
Now I'm using it normally all seems to work properly.
Congrats for 0.6 release!
