I think it's easier the way it is, where there's only one place where
input events are stored to the queue.

For example, should the callback be invoked from XTread_socket, in the
course of an event that's dispatched from XTread_socket to the scroll
bar widget, XTread_socket's local variable numchars had to be
decremented if the callback itself pushed something on the queue.
