we used to have 2 threads in the old ethereal for a short period.

one thread for the main application and a second thread that was
dedicated to only update/redraw teh statistics taps once every few

this did cause a quite significant degradation in performance/speed of
ethereal which is why it was removed :-(

Sorry, but I don't really understand the relationship - can you explain
what you mean?

When I remember correct, the threading support wasn't working well with
GTK2.4, but that might have changed since then.
