A colleague and I maintain the computers in two math classrooms (31 per room). Last week, we installed Mathematica 7 before re-imaging the machines for the upcoming semester. We noticed that the first time a user logs in and starts Mathematica, there is a brief "Formatting Notebook" pop-up before Mathematica starts. It only lasts a moment, and does not seem to recur if the same user logs back onto the same machine (we keep user profiles until the end of the semester), so we're going to worry about it. Still, we are curious as to what causes it. We never saw this with previous versions of Mathematica. -- Helen Read University of Vermont
