 In the code before the wrong commit, the SolarMutex stuff surrounds the 
Application::PostUserEvent() calls, so I think it belongs before them. Not 
quite sure if it's really needed, as it apparently has worked this way for 
some time, but I've commited a change to make it the way it was before the 
commit, thanks.

 The solar mutex is a recursive mutex (can be acquire several times by the 
same thread), the tryToAcquire() call I'd guess is a test if the current 
thread has it acquired, but it seems to be pointless, as ReleaseSolarMutex() 
would just return 0 otherwise. The -1 is to compensate for this one 
additional acquire. Just confused and pointless, as far as I can say.
