The input thread doesn't call PostMessage.  It calls post_message,
which is a private messaging mechanism between the input thread and
the main thread, implemented in w32xfns.c and based on a critical
section.  IOW, we don't use the Windows messaging in that case.  So I
don't see how calling SendMessage will help in this situation.  Am I
missing something?
