cEITScanner::Process() calls Device->SwitchChannel() which eventually
leads to a call to cStatus::MsgChannelSwitch(). So yes, this is the case.

But that's not a call from a "background process" - it's done from the
main thread.

The same could happen if a recording starts on the primary device
while a replay is going on.
