Polling GrCheckNextEvent() and calling an 'idle' function every time
you receive a GR_EVENT_TYPE_NONE is an unusual way of doing things.
Because there isn't a delay of any sort in idle(), you'll end up
calling it over and over as fast as possible using 100% CPU. Better
to do a GrGetNextEvent() and wait for an event to come in.
Also, you use the value of timer_tid without initialising it. Chances
are, gcc will initialise it to 0 for you, but it's not really a good
idea to rely on that.
