	Hmm, interesting - looks like you're trying to run the main loop in 2
threads; and you begin to hit the limits of what ORBit2 can do I'm
afraid. I'm hoping Sebastian is interested in helping you ...

	You can use the ORB in a multi-threaded environment, as long as you
process all your incoming calls, and make all your outgoing calls from a
single thread. We very much hope to expand ORBit2 to work better in a
threaded environment, but it needs work, and no-one is currently doing
it it seems.
