Hi all!

And DO note that now it also says:
     int mask= pss->pendingEvents & eventMask;

...and not \"|\"! Quite an important change if you ask me... And if you don\'t
agree then I don\'t understand squat of this. :-) (That darn \"|\" really gave me a
hard time understanding the \"logic\" here, but now when it\'s a \"&\" things are
looking much more understandable)
