Re: getImage exception

  Thanks for the pointer...I set up my code as indicated, where a new
thread (created in my event handler) calls a method which then calls
getImage().  However, getImage is stalling.  My first thought was my new
thread was deadlocked with another thread, but the event handler
continues on its merry way and the main program still runs fine.  My new
thread is still around - I list all the active threads and see it on the
list.  Any ideas what to look for in my code that may be causing this?

Thanks...
