pygtk + threading.Timer

Hello!
I have simple chat application with pygtk UI. I want some event (for
example update user list) to have place every n seconds.
What's the best way to archive it?
I tried threading.Timer but result is following: all events wait till
exit of gtk main loop and only then they occur.
Thanks in advance

See gobject.timeout_add documentation in pygtk reference
