Thanks for the smile.
I know I am both too stupid and too ignorant to "fix" threading. I was
merely reporting what I had seen. I certainly have been spoiled such
that if something takes longer than about 2 seconds, I think its frozen,
which is pretty silly for an old fart like me to think that way.
My message, which I probably badly garbled, was that this is an area in
which patience is a virtue...

Any event which can potentially take more than one
second or so to process should be processed in a separate thread.
But I shouldn't really say anything, since I'm not volunteering to fix this
