Well, I just tried setting a breakpoint in a program with
my XCOLORS running. When I hit the breakpoint all event 
processing stops, as I would expect. I monkeyed around
a little bit, even hit a couple of buttons that would
throw up widgets. Nothing. As I expect.

But then I typed .Continue and all hell broke loose! :-)

All those events were there, just queuing up, ready to
go as soon as I turned things back on. Neat. Just what
I expected. :-)
