test case demonstrating PeekMessage give up timeslices

We changed our program to avoid the needless polling (only two PeekMessage are
needet then). We add also the PM_NOYIELD. This gives back the reaction of the
program if some other process consumes process time. But the speed is more
reduced than windows.
Your patch works for our program. It seems it is faster than before.
So now our program works, not fine but it works.
If you can find a better fix, it would be fine...
