Someone earlier in the thread tried to separate the discussion of the
display of the cached status info that GUI's do retain from the one
about using locks to imply needs-lock to other people.

My normal working mode is to have about 20 windows open all the time
(some local, some remote) and after starting anything that might take
time to complete in one window I immediately jump to another. Short
attention span, I guess...

I wouldn't intentionally plan to do the same thing at the same time in 2
different windows, but it happens.

Front? I hardly ever run anything full-screen - and even then, there is
the other monitor off to the side...
