I think it's simply because the script takes such a long time to execute. It 
indeed goes much faster in Netscape 6. But the problem is the script itself 
being slow, not the circle cursor showing. Speed up the script and the 
cursor will disappear much faster.

As to why the script is slow, I don't know. (Well, maybe I'd say "Because it 
is Dreamweaver", but that would be unfair). It's a typical wysiwyg script 
that you simply can't figure out without spending a full day on it.

Would be interesting to find out, though.
