I got some good answers in the perl-gtk IRC channel.

No you didn't. As you'll find out when you stick your DBI query in your idle handler and your GUI freezes again.

The most important part of that response was "don't do anything that takes more than a few microseconds".


Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
