    Flickering mouse pointer when inserting comments

    Anyone come across a strange problem I've recently seen on a couple of machines lately??

    In Windows 2003 on XP, in a word document, inserting a comment... when using the comments bar, as soon as you select insert, comment, the mouse starts flickering, and it becomes very difficult to add in the comment. You can still type, but even touching the keys for a fraction of a second, several instances of the character appears as the comment. Turn off the bar and put on the balloons and comments can be added flicker-free..

    Anyone?

    I've just ahd another look at this issue - it seems to be completely related to the Reviewing Pane as I see the very same issue with tracked changes as well as comments. As soon as the reviewing pane appears, the mouse pointer starts flickering between a pointer and an egg timer so quickly you think you are seeing things..
