no hard drive activity. i was fairly careful -- when a package was
being configured and was taking more than just a few seconds, i'd
verify that neither the HD nor the DVD drive were active. the instant
i moved the mouse, zoom, progress! stop the mouse and, very quickly,
back to a quiet state.
has no one ever seen this behaviour before? it's a new one on me.
