I assume you mean your worker threads are blocking on an
event or something waiting for work to come. Try running
Word and notice how long it takes to start. The problem is
it is a DDE server and DDE uses broadcast messages.
Since your threads are not dispathing their message queues,
the DDE broadcast hangs (until it times out) waiting for
responses from any top-level windows on a blocked thread.
Note DDE is not the only piece of code to broadcast
messages - open sysedit, edit win.ini and save and this
results in a WM_WININICHANGE message being broadcast
too. (At least that's my memory from Win9x... A quick
check in MSDN Library reveals this has been superseded
by WM_SETTINGCHANGE today, but the principle is the same.)

The moral is: "seems to work" does not equal "works".
