Background Fix Helps

Mail*Link#170#                    Background Fix Helps
Tried some short timing test with Bill St. Clair's posted fix (causes Lisp
background to sleep part of the time). I used a wall clock to time from
double-click of a second application's icon on the desk top to it's end of
initialization (so it would be ready for commands).

no Lisp at all  -- 20 seconds   MACL 1.3.2 sitting --26   with fix  -- 22.4
(two runs each for the first two numbers which showed no obvious variance,
average of five runs for the last number)

Seems to help. Thanks Bill.
