  (just to clarify, it's generally fine I think, but QWaitCondition is just 
broken so it's going to cause people, especially on Solaris and other Unix, 
problems)  I'm wondering if we really want a high resolution timer in the GUI 
thread though.  It might interfere with intense graphics operations like 
those in layout mode.
