We do not reset the status ourselves. The interrupted status has already 
been reset by code that invoked interrupted() and thrown the 
InterruptedException in the first place.

There's nothing wrong with that, though, because we reset the doDispatch 
flag upon processing the exception. We now use this flag to indicate 
that event processing must be stopped.

best regards,
