No no my friend, you have it backwards.  HandleEvents is never called 
"automatically" - hence the HANDLEEVENTS keyword, which YOU must place in 
your code "manually".  The question is, what right do YOU have to exclude 
HANDLEEVENTS.  Why have you not made sure it was called in your loop?  We 
can't accept responsibility for poor programming.  Writing a program that 
called HandleEvents regularly is YOUR job.  Quit trying to blame us for 
your bad programming.
