Unfortunately, I don't think these changes fix the problem. I've
noticed the code you added (sort of analogous to critical sections),
and it's been there for a while, right? At least now I know why it's
there :-).

Anyhow, I don't think it's the timer-fired spelling stuff that's
causing the problem here. I think it's the immediate spell check of
words that's doing it. (Aside: some time ago, I mentioned on this
list that even that immediate check was accomplished by queuing the
block and having it done by the timer. I was incorrect. The
immediate check [you know, after you type a space, you either get a
squiggle or you don't for the word you just finished] is done
synchronously via the "pending word" stuff.)
