I'm not into all the eye candy stuff either. I'm not sure if we're 
taking about the same thing here.
What I meant was, when you move your mouse up the start menu quickly, 
everything tries to expand immedietly. This turns the menu into a mad 
flashing strobe like something out of a prodigy video.
Also, when wanting to follow an expanded item, if you drift off with the 
cursor there is no leeway and you have to start over again.  It's sorta 
like that game at the fair where you have to move the loop around 
without touching the wire, else you have to start over.
