I don't know about the "idle" part, but yes, it isn't parallel. It's easy
enough to test... see if helloWorld ever happens:

on mouseUp
    send "myInfiniteLoop" to me in 5 seconds
    send "helloWorld" to me in 10 seconds

on myInfiniteLoop
    put "About to hose LC..."
    repeat forever
        # do nothing

on helloWorld
    answer "Hello, world!"
