Why is Second Thread Blocked?

I have a solution with two projects.


Private m_Flagged As Boolean
Private WithEvents m_Project2 As New Project2

Private Sub WaitForFlag()
m_Flagged = False

Do While Not m_Flagged

MessageBox.Show("Event Occurred.")

End Sub

Private Sub FlagEvent(...) Handles m_Project2.EventOccurred
m_Flagged = True
End Sub


Public Event EventOccurred(...)

Private Sub WaitForEvent()

'If Some Event Occurred Then
RaiseEvent EventOccurred(...)
'End If

End Sub
WaitForEvent in Project2 is started on a new thread. The message in
WaitForFlag (Project1) is never displayed as the code stands above. If I
replace the Sleep(1) with DoEvents then it does get displayed.

I thought the whole point of executing on separate threads was that I didn't
need DoEvents anymore. Have I missed something?
