The ScrollToLine issue may or may not be due to threading, but doing 
anything (such as adding text to a buffer) is not thread safe.  If you 
want to use threads, don't call any wing api function from a thread 
other than the main one.  Or, maybe the call to schedule an idle 
function can be made to be thread-safe, but I'm not even sure of that at 
the moment.

You may want to look at how the cvs script handles subprocesses and use 
that approach instead.  I will look at your script later and try to 
suggest a better approach.  I just looked at your script briefly saw 
that it imported threading and thought this may be a problem.  Sorry 
that the wingapi is not documented as being not thread safe.
