Hi Kurt,

(well if this is not a genuine german name, there are no german names at 
all ;-)

i had this problem, too, when i hd an application that had  a player on 
its first
card that would be started by an mouseenter.

I was wondering for hours what could cause my app to "hang" for a couple 
of secs :-(

Now i just start a player on opencard of the first card of my apps. 
(Windows only ;-)

I just put an empty sound into that player.

Open your favourite sondediting-app.

Create a new sound and just add 1 or 2 millisecs of silence !!!

Save it as "dummy.au" or whatever and start it when your app starts.

Worked fine for me.

Hope that helps...

I can send you my dummy if you don't have any sound-app.
