Buddy stopping

When I am using a buddy, I am having problems with iterations through a single buddy object. For instance, in the patch below, I believe that I should get an endless loop. Instead, I get the counter to move once and then nothing.

Do I misunderstand how buddy works?

The issue is that when the output of buddy triggers itself, this happens within the same thread. By deferring the trigger to a new thread, you get the loop.

Thanks. That seems to have completely solved my problem. So, even if the buddy triggers different objects the derflow object needs to be present to allow the buddy to trigger?
