    This should only be needed where we BLOCK_INPUT for a longer time, and 
    the places I know of are menus and dialogs.  Are there any other 
    operations that needs to be considered?  I'm fixing menus and dialogs 
    right now.

Menus and dialogs are the only places I know of.
Emacs might sometimes wait longer when trying to read a file
if the data is really coming from the network; but 
the file-reading code isn't reentrant so we can't run timers
