I haven't had much time to work on this but I did figure out the following:

The reason that the "Edit" dialog is being opened is that when the
click is processed by the button-press-event handler, the width of the
first column in the TreeView is 0. As a result, the calculation of
where the click occurred always ends up determining that the "Edit"
cell was clicked.

After much digging, I found out that the code which changes the width
of the first column cell to 0 is
"_gtk_tree_view_column_cell_set_dirty()" when called by

The column is set to be with AUTOMATIC size so that code path in
gtk_tree_row_changed() gets triggered.

However, as I understand it, if my signal is running in the main
context, the signal handler should not be running at the same time as
Gtk is recalculating/repainting the TreeView. It seems as if the
threaded signal handler is not running in the main context. The above
behavior is replicated even if I switched to use g_idle_add() instead
of g_main_context_invoke_full().
