wait 0 seconds with messages
This only allows for messages to be processed. So when you click a
button to start ThingTwo, ThingTwo will start the next time ThingOne
does the wait command. But then ThingTwo has control. It will run
until it exits, at which point ThingOne regains control and continues
There may be a clever trick I don't know about, but I think your
options are to figure out a way to get the job done in one routine,
or switch to send...in. Or build your own thread implementation.
