Internally there is a counter - and only one - the engine uses it too
when it needs to.
The lock is dropped as soon as you get back to a wait with messages
though (IIRC) (certainly the main runloop).
Unbalanced lock screens can cause problems though - the IDE has had a
fair few in the past - it might still... Do you have an example of the
abberent behavior you've seen? It would be useful to know if there is an
engine issue lurking here, or a misplaced lock/unlock screen in the IDE.
