Try it after commenting out the line:
 --put "Processing " & peptides & " masses, please wait..." into field 
I think you will be surprised how much of the total time it taken updating 
that field.
I will use "set cursor to busy" if possible because it takes so much less 
time, that it is often sufficient. Likewise, things that seem to require the busy 
cursor often run so much faster without it, that it really isn't needed.
I'd be interested in your results.
