Is this really a correct way of calling sleep? There are 2 overloads of
sleep function:
The one which defines the duration (how long to sleep) and the other the
time-point until which the thread should at least sleep. I assume you are
going to use the second one, therefore the call should be:


Hope this is going to resolve your issue... I wonder if that is really
intended that an implicit cast from milliseconds to system_time or duration
object is really a good idea???
