	Hmm.. That is -- from 21-Sept-1999.

	I think I got that fixed at 2.99.52(patch1) by
	making sure that QUEUEONLY threads don't auto-start
	at the arrival of a new message, nor with processing
	thread inactivation.  (end of Dec-1999)

	You could consider adding parameter:
	then no idle TAs will be left behind for very long
	(idle cleaner runs every 20-40 seconds).

	That happened as a part of scheduler thread state
	*design*, and rework I did a month ago.
	(Older one was - I have to admit - just slapped
	 together and patched when it appeared to break.
	 Oh dear... experience and some thought did help
	 a lot at doing the design..)

	All in all, I wrote around 200 lines code, but
	removed there some 1200 lines for that thing to
	work properly.
