      Description

      The browser and applet JVM fatally hangs if certain jalviewLite javascript calls are made sequentially.
      This is due to a deadlock between the javascript execution thread and the java GUI update thread, so wherever possible, API function implementations should thread off calls to Java code using 'java.awt.EventQueue.invokeLater(Runnable ..)'.
