This looks promising. But a couple of things.

1. In e.g. SetNeedGrammarCheck and SetFieldsDirty shouldn't
StartBackgroundJobs only be called for the "true" case and not the
"false" case ?

2. the...

 if ( !GetUpdtFlds().IsInUpdateFlds() &&
      !IsExpFldsLocked() )
     return 0;

condition to me looks that it will restart the timer if we not currently
updating-fields but the updating-fields flag is set after that condition
and the updating fields works done there. So it suggests that fields
will never be actually updated and the timer run again and again.

Maybe that should be...

if (GetUpdtFlds().IsInUpdateFlds())
    //Already updating fields, try again later
    return 0;
