Problems with 'when-port-readable'

I have a problem with the implementation of 'when-port-readable'.
It allow asynchron reading whenever the file is readable.
This new implementation of 'fileevent' seems to interrupt the main
flow of controll. The old 'fileevent' don't do that. The old
'fileevent' was dispatched together with other Tk-Events. So you
could synchronize with 'tkwait'.

I have read the documentation carefully but perhaps I miss something.
So my questions are:

How can I synchronize now?

Is there something like a semaphore?
