It stays the pointer (though I have seen the spinning color wheel a
couple of times), but everything becomes unresponsive. For example,
I tried requesting "feature structure" for three edges in quick succession.
It let me do the first two, but then the pop up menu wouldn't come
for the third. I also couldn't click on a window from another app
to move to it, or bring another LKB window to the front, or alt-tab
between apps. The length of time it takes to display an edge seems
to be correlated with the amount of information in hte edge.
