I'll admit to not knowing exactly what you're doing, but shouldn't you
be calling d.cancel() not d._canceller() ?

You are correct of course. I started off using cancel() but was getting already called errors. So I started looking around to see what was going on and tried to trace through the various functions being called. That's how I ended up playing around with _canceller.

What I did not do was find out what was really causing the already called errors.

Which now you have prompted me I have sorted out. Typically something silly - like overriding the callLater functions.

So sorry for all the noise over _canceller.
