I'm sorry, it seems I have not answered very clearly and I have mislead
you.  I don't have any problem with the lack of threads.  

I said previously:

I meant to say that they seem a long way off (if we need them at all -
that would be an interesting discussion...) and that there is no need
for them, as you stated previously.  

My problem was the inability of the Resolver to resolve.  I had been
initializing the network but I was still finding myself in this strange
state.  After running the first script that I posted previously, the
Network resets in some way (???) and it starts working.  If I try the
second script first, it does a 'Socket initializeNetwork' but it doesn't
resolve.  My project is moving forward (in fits and starts :) ).


Smalltalking by choice.  Isn't it nice to have one!
