Benoit, gedit does inhibit on a gtk level using gtk_application_inhibit()
could gb.gui implement inhibit?  (if a qt alternative)


gedit inhibit code..

if (can_close && (priv->inhibition_cookie != 0))
		gtk_application_uninhibit (GTK_APPLICATION (g_application_get_default ()),
		priv->inhibition_cookie = 0;
	else if (!can_close && (priv->inhibition_cookie == 0))
		priv->inhibition_cookie = gtk_application_inhibit (GTK_APPLICATION
(g_application_get_default ()),
		                                                   GTK_WINDOW (window),
		                                                   _("There are
unsaved documents"));
