Why does it alternate between the clock and arrow? Were you running a
script? Does this happen in other programs?

I may have a similar problem, but I have not associated it with mma or qk.
Here's my situation. About three times a day I'll notice that my cusor will
move side to side or up and down about 5 times per second, and this lasts
about one or two second, then one second rest, totaling of about 3 busts
whenever it happens. Of course nothing is moving my mouse and I'm fairly
sure my mouse or keyboard isn't defective. Apple told me it is POSSIBLE it
is a CPU hardware problem, but they have not heard it before.

I always have my QuickKey 2.1.3 installed. I had this problem on my
PowerMac 7500/100 since I bought it in Jan.
