Putting something like "show animated.gif > get shell("cp fileLocA 
fileLocB") in a button leaves the animated gif completely static during 
the copy operation. Interestingly, the gif is static the whole time - 
until the copy is finished - even if there is a wait before the get 
shell(). Perhaps you are doing something a little more 
involved/complicated to display the gif?
