Mark:  One thing worth noting is that "send xyz to me in 0 millisecs" can allow screen updates and other events to take place, while attempts to do the same in a repeat loop may not.  So I'm pretty sure other events will take place before the send is executed.  This is why long running sessions of "send" with a specific interval can eventually get thrown off.
