Basically. The idle message is sent regularly whenever no other handlers 
are running. The engine uses these idle periods to do housekeeping, 
which I guess you could think of as "catching up."

When you wait with messages, the engine is put into the state where 
"nothing is happening" and so receives idle messages for the period of 
time specified by the wait. It also allows other user actions to execute 
and regular engine messages to be sent normally.
