|     I wrote the question to which locks were the answer.  I had the same
|     problem you do.  Instead of using Clim locks, I used the locks in
|     Allegro's multi-processing system.  Since you have a multi-process
|     application, your lisp must have some sort of lock mechanism.  My code
|     is very simple.   ...

| they are portable across all platforms that implement CLIM.

1) Since it protects the processes from accessing the screen
simultaneously, why doesn't it do me any good?

2) I'm using CLIM 1.1, and I still don't know what calls to use.  I
can't find any documentation in the CLIM 1.0 manual, the only one I
have.  What are they?
