Unexpected error during pthread_mutex_unlock

I am struggling with two applications which refuse to start, giving
the following error message:
GLib (gthread-posix.c): Unexpected error from C library during
'pthread_mutex_unlock': Operation not permitted. Aborting.
One is installed from port multimedia/audacious-3.4.3, the other is
openxenmanager (http://sourceforge.net/projects/openxenmanager/), an
application using python and pygtk.
The error message points to glib, of which I have the latest version
Is there anything I (being not a developer) can do to overcome this?
Googling around I found a similar issue with another Python
application (ports/176888), where as a workaround it was suggested to
remove calls to gtk.gdk.threads_init() from the Python script. I tried
this approach with OpenXenManager and indeed the application launches
successfully, but simply locks up when trying to use certain menu
command. So the application probably needs the threads functionality.
Thanks in advance
