Hi,

You could join us on the Ruby-GNOME2 dev list (it's
used for support as well).

I use TreeView extensively and I don't get any crashes
anymore. Your crashes could be related to the use of
Threads, because it's far more problematic on Windows
where it could result in deadlocks.

The rule on Windows is to have only one thread update
the GUI.

Then again, if you could provide a minimum working
example we could test it.

Join us at:

Thanks for giving it a whirl.

Cheers,
Joao
