Yes, this is very likely a threading problem.  The current event posting
mechanism is not designed for thread communication.

Could you briefly explain a few more details about your architecture,
so we can suggest an alternative solution:
Does your ECLiPSe thread process jobs that it receives via these events?
If yes, are these jobs then queued, or interrupt each other?
Is the event simple, or are you passing any data (arguments, etc)
along with the event notification?  Or is it just an abort-event?
