No, it's the main thread that calls SendMessage, to tell the input
thread to draw something.  And since the input thread is inside
'sleep', the SendMessage call never returns, and the main thread never
gets around to checking its input queue, where there's an event bound
to kill-emacs, waiting to be processed.
