I can confirm that if you cover the pup / pirut dialogs while they are 
downloading / calculating / resolving / updating with another window, 
then when you move the other window (or minimize), it takes maybe 15 
seconds before the contents (not the window dressing) are updated.

Does top show you that the box is busy ?
sysload ?
% memory ?
% cpu for pup ?
How much Raaaaammmmm on that machine ?
What about gkrellm (I like my pretty graphs) ?
