Re: "formatting notebook contents" messages, why so many in Mathematica

Not that I would consider myself one (experts for this are probably 
limited to the developer team at wolfram research), but I think this 
happens when the FrontEnd thinks it will take a while to rerender the 
stuff it shows. What I want to say is: I don't think this depends on 
long calculations within the Kernel. For me this happens often when I 
resize windows which contain many automatically generated opener-views 
and panels, and sometimes I feel that it takes an unreasonable amount of 
time (up to some minutes) so I decided it is best to not resize windows 
with a lot of dynamic/grahic stuff. Anyway I suspect there is room for 
improvement here...
