In order to keep the gui viable, ecasound runs in a separate thread. In order to keep the program from getting ahead of itself and trying to launch ecasound before the current recording process has finished, I use gobject.timeout_add() for the length of the recording (plus a second or two for safety).

This doesn't sound like a particuarly nice design, but I can't
immediately think of what the problem is. You should post your code so
others can take a look. In general however, you should remember
* Be careful using threads and PyGtk+
* gobject.timeout_add is not guaranteed to be millisecond precise
