So, would you recommend that I extend the component and override 
DisconnectAll to, say, fire an event that I could hook on to send the 
messages; and then call DisconnectAll() from my worker thread instead 
of using the loop?  If so, we should add something like this to the 
component itself, no? (I could provide the code when I'm done with it.)

Are you suggesting the component is not stable for a production 

        Thanks for your help, Arno.
