Thank you for taking the time to respond. Perhaps I didn't ask the question
correctly, but as far as I can tell your example does address the question
I was asking.

Take a look at this example.
set the cProp of me to 3
setProp cProp x
if x = "a" then
set cProp of the target to x
else if x = "b" then
set the cProp of the target to x
I have written a setProp to only handle accept certain values, ("a" and "b"
). The DoSomething handler represents "Some other code" that attempts to
set the property. Since it has set locked messages, the setProp is ignored
and values other than a and b can be set.
That is what I am talking about.
This seems to me to be a pretty big problem. How can I ever be sure that
setProp and GetProp handlers will actually be used. I may not have control
over all the code and there might be a lock messages somewhere up the chain.
