Hi Bob,

I'm not sure from your description how / when you are seeing the 
(unexpected) changes happening.

Remember that lockscreen is automatically set to false when there is no 
handler running, so unlerss you have an intensive handler running, you 
will see these changes.

If it's not that - could you describe how you are verifying the effect 
of lockscreen in more detail. Thanks.

Okay so I turn it off, put the command “Lock Screen” at the entry point to a selectionChanged handler which goes on to do a number of things that change the appearance of the screen. The screen is decidedly NOT LOCKED! The things I go on to do are things like changing the hilitedItems of a tab widget which in turn shows and hides a number of objects, and also changes the selection in a number of datagrids. Every action that alters the screen is visible after I issue the Lock Screen command.
