Hi Joe et al.,

I turned off the sound (by pressing the appropriate key [F3]) and all went right... suddenly.

A little remainder here: since the two loud-speakers (!) do not make enough sound, this do not hurt me !

The only thing that annoy me is the absence of menu bar flashing (just what I saw under MacOS y up to 9)... but this is another story !

Thank you for your positive input,

Someone else suggested that it has to do with spinning the hard drive
back up. Please listen (or feel) for your hard drive spinning, and
let us know if that's what's going on. If so, I would expect it to
only be slow on rare occasions unless you have your HD set to spin
down very quickly.

It was also suggested that turning off the sound track helps -- which
would make sense (sounds are more likely to get purged from RAM and
need to be reloaded than other resources). So you could try that too.
