No sorry Alex, the pulsating button is NOT the problem - that doesn't
take very much CPU time at all (Apple wouldn't make that mistake, which
would be entirely unacceptable) Check out any dialog box with a
pulsating button (well, any of the Apple apps, and anything I've
written :-)) --- hardly any effect on CPU usage. RunRev seems to have a
tight loop running in the Find & Replace window when something is
present in the search field (but not otherwise).
