gtkmm does not update on signals coming from outside gtkmm itself

I am having trouble updating a TreeView in gtkmm when receiving an external signal. The TreeView only updates when I do something, like mouse over the window, etc...

How can I tell gtkmm that it needs to update the treeview? I already tried the queue_draw() method.

I have fixed this by using Glib::Dispatcher instead of sigc::signal.
