[racket-dev] threads starve when file dialog opened. Places or GRacket2 solves?

As the program below illustrates on OS X, threads (and eventspaces and ...) stop when a file dialog is open.  I'm guessing that places can fix this, by actually putting something in another thread. Is there any chance that GRacket2 will fix this magically?


#lang racket

(require racket/gui)

(parameterize ([current-eventspace (make-eventspace)])
   (lambda ()
     (let loop ()
       (printf "abc\n")
       (sleep 1)
