Interesting - is it a lot of updates you're doing, via Application.Idle?
 You might consider reworking your updates to using BeginInvoke and/or
Invoke to see if it's a problem with your Application.Idle approach.

Of course, if you disable any updating of the UI and you're still in
trouble, then it's unlikely that it's a problem with your UI update
marshalling code.

However, thinking about what you've said - how are you synchronising the UI
update queue?  You said you're pushing events into a FIFO - how is that FIFO
producer synchronised, WRT the Application.Idle consumer?
