Isn't everything protected by updateLock, so even if ignoreevents
fails it still shouldn't be a problem? Anyway, the trylock stuff 
sounds much better, I overlooked that method in the QT docs, I wanted 
to use locked() but didn't, since the docs say it's not defined for
all platfoms so I went for the ignoreevents approach.
