Yes, only that using deferToThread does not guarantee
that the operation will be deferred to the same
I thought about limiting the thread pool to exactly 1
thread but it is no option because in the future I
might need othr usual worker threads.
Anyway, I solved it using a custom thread and call in
the main thread with callFromThread.
I thought there might be a way to defer to a specific
thread so I don't need to use custom threads but it's
alright like this also.
