If update requests aren't processed, the rest of the window/views will 
also not be drawn when needed. Lets say you have a synchronous slider, 
which changes the width of the window it is in. If update messages 
aren't processed, the window will resize, but not be redrawn. A more 
common example would be that the slider would send a message which 
invalidates another view in the same window.
