If you think your users are skittish that way, why not roll your own? A handful of small images that cycle around?

Subject: set cursor to busy

Well I've been wondering about this feature. I have "set cursor to busy"
whenever something takes more than a second and I see that interesting
vintage black and white beach ball. That is fine and really a feature
because I'm in the LiveCode developing environment so when LiveCode crashes
then I see the colourful system beach ball spin and I know that is
different than something from my code.

But what about when my code is in a stand-alone? Won't users be confused by
that vintage beach ball? Is there another way to say "set cursor to busy"?

Perhaps "set new system cursor to busy" or (for old one) "set system 8
cursor to busy?"

Any ideas?
