One situation in particular is when you make changes to numerous objects
via a single script, such as grouping, changing location, scaling, etc.
These cases will almost always execute faster when lock messages is true
because the IDE (and/or scripts that track objects and their properties)
won't update until messages are unlocked.  Locking the screen helps, but
locking messages helps more.
