That's my current workaround, but it seems such a shame. I was hoping to let wxWidgets do all the system-specific work. Thanks for the effort, though!

Thanks for verifying, asteelef! Yes, I'm writing a console app, and using wxwidgets to ensure portability. When you say Yes it works just fine for me. I'm assuming you didn't compile the identical code but used a variant form, i.e within a wxApp. Does the 'Main' version work for you? I'll take a loo...

In the example above, 'test' should wait for 'countTo100k' to complete and then output its message, instead it continues without...
