Making "read from file" less blocky.

I'm having trouble finding a combination of settings that allows my file
loading to seem to happen in the background.
repeat while read_result is not "eof"
read from file ThisFile for (1024 * 1000) bytes
put the result into read_result
put it after IntoThisVariable
add length(it) to amount_read
TSTProgress amount_read,ExpectedSize,"%","Loading File ..."
(Progress Indicator Handler)
wait 10 milliseconds with messages
no matter what I try, its still sluggish, and it seems like messages are
still accumilating instead of being processed by the engine.
Am I missing something? Normally waiting with messages sufficiently frees
the engine to allow the UI to remain responsive.
