[Image-SIG] busy cursor stores up events

Is there a way to get the BusyManager to prevent the widgets from
servicing events accumulated during the busy period?

I've been looking at the 2nd example at


Although the widgets do not respond to user events while the system is
'busy', they seem to register user events. When the system returns to
the 'not busy' state, all the events are then processed. For instance,
if I try to click the button repeatedly while 'busy', the gui doesn't
respond (that's good). But when it's no longer busy, the button command
prints out
a whole column of hello's from the stored up events.
