Do you mean like below - which then means, I do use synchronize.  I
use synchronize to draw on the main form (running in the main thread).
 I don't get any lockups as that bug report says, but then I am
running under Ubuntu that uses Gnome desktop. Again, no such issues
under Windows.

TSortThread is the base class for my three different Sorting threads,
so they all use this function.

procedure TSortThread.VisualSwap(A, B, I, J: Integer);
  FA := A;
  FB := B;
  FI := I;
  FJ := J;

They never attached a sample application, so I can't try it on my
system to see if I get the same issues as they do, but as I stated, I
don't get lockups, only that the threads run in sequence - one after
the other.

What platform are you running on, Windows?
