It's probably possible to hack something if you are
ready to edit source C code and compile the thing
For example, change dlls/user/message.c around
line 1212 in current cvs (where you have the comment
'no message available'), to add a sleep if there are
several consecutives occurences of this event (that
is no message available)
Something like that (not sure if this will work :-))
