flowblade, mirage and other python-gtk2 applications crashing in debian

version
-------
flowblade    = 1:0.12.0-dmo1
mirage       = 0.9.5.1-3
python-gtk2  = 2.24.0-4 
debian       = jessie/sid 

how to reproduce
----------------
launch on the CLI
mirage or flowblade

you will get:
-------------
"""Attempt to unlock mutex that was not locked
Aborted"""


ugly fix:
---------

search:
"gtk.gdk.threads_init"
(example vim /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/mirage.py, line 74)

replace by:
gtk.gdk.threads_init()
gtk.gdk.threads_enter()
