Hi Mike,

There is no provision in X-Talks for multi-threading; so you'll have 
to approach it another way.  One can place wait statements in a 
handler so mouseUp or other pending messages/events can grab the CPU 
(and not give it up until finished or in wait state); but otherwise 
the engine will not send any message until the current handler (and 
any handlers that called it) finish execution.
