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.
