[IronPython] Threading support in Silverlight

Sorry, false alarm.

The timer was firing, but the function I was using to test it
contained a print statement, stdout was being redirected to a UI
control, and I guess the timer callback gets invoked in a seperate
thread, so manipulating the UI is illegal. I suspect there is some
error happening somewhere, but it just fails silently.

Sorry again, my mistake.
