I have a JavaScript routine that runs on a timer and updates the position of a
background image using the CSS background-position property.  In Internet
Explorer, it changes the mouse pointer to an hourglass when it refreshes the
screen, and this is really annoying since it happens on the timer, about every
100 milliseconds or so.  Is there anything I can do about this?  Thank you
very much.
