I checked the code of TThread.Queue and in fact it does not queue the 
call if TThread.Queue is executed from the main thread, but performs the 
call right away.

This supposedly is not compatible with how Application.QueueAsyncCall 
works in other WidgetTypes.

Unfortunately the svn-version of the rtl does not provide a means to 
prevent this (queer, Delphi compatible) behavior.

So for full compatibility we would need an enhancement in the fpc-rtl.
