Behavior is certainly undefined if you use GME COM objects on a
different thread (without using CoMarshalInterThreadInterfaceInStream/


You could try using the Multi-user backend with SVN, making automated
changes in one instance of the project, and user changes in another.

The plugin basically has an extra thread that is constantly injecting

The tool works okay, but it becomes somewhat unstable when the plugin
and someone using the GME make simultaneous changes.


Is there a way to apply something like a mutex to protect the local


Thank you very very much for your time! :D
