It worked for me, and now I'm happy :)
Thank you very much.

Yes and No, using SigAction it works fine, using signal, it works, but only 2
times, giving me an "Alarm Clock" and terminating my program.

Under Unix point of view, what else (useful) can I do?

Well, I'll only put a new event in X Event Queue, so my main block wich is
blocked waiting X Events, will process this event ;)

Thanks again
