I'm sorry, but I can't see how the queue would help me on this, since
I only have 2 threads and the documentation esplicitly states that it
helps with multiple threads. I have no items to put in the queue, my
only concern is not to update the screen while I am changing the state
of the contact list... Maybe there's something I didn't think of, but
I'd need more details on your part if that is the case, because I
really can't see the advantage of Queue in this situation...
