Ummm, Ok, thanks for the response, but the program is...
int main( int argc, char *argv )
sleep( 5 );
# gcc t.c -o t -Wl,--subsystem,windows
Starting this from explorer results in a 5 second busy hour glass and (of
course), explorer is unresponsive until the program ends.

no its about what resources you are accessing. system resources provoke
a (in my knowledge) an arrow+hourglass and file resources provoke an
hourglass. I know for a fact its about what you are doing.
