Bug Description

I run:
make check
and when the tests start I get the following errors in .xtest-text-entry:
Nux: Gpu Vendor: Intel Open Source Technology Center
Nux: Gpu Renderer: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Ivybridge Mobile x86/MMX/SSE2
Nux: Gpu OpenGL Version: 3.0 Mesa 9.0
Nux: Gpu OpenGL Major Version: 3
Nux: Gpu OpenGL Minor Version: 0
Nux: The GraphicsEngine is using the GLSL shader code path.
Nux: [IBusIMEContext::IBusIMEContext] Can not connect to ibus
Nux: TextEntry created: Ok
Nux: Typed "Nux": Ok
make[2]: *** [test-apps] Segmentation fault (core dumped)
make[2]: Leaving directory `/shared/common/staging/source/nux/tests'
make[1]: *** [check-am] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/shared/common/staging/source/nux/tests'
make: *** [check-recursive] Error 1

Further information:

The test segfaults in the signal handler for SetKeyFocusArea after calling nux::GetWindowThread. This is because the tests unsafely call directly into the program thread from the test thread, so when the signal fires, it attempts to access thread local storage that doesn't exist.

Fixing this requires some framework in nux to communicate with window threads outside of the event system.
