I don't have the pause, but I do have the flash of white, as I said in an
earlier note. Indeed, for my talk at IJCAR last Friday (Sorry you weren't
around for that session, Larry.) I rebooted back into 9.1 to actually give the
presentation. Someone else I talked to at the conference (I forget 
who) just decided
to use a plain style (i.e. just a blank white background) so that the flash to
white wouldn't be noticeable.

I hadn't noticed till now that they were gone, as I tend not to use them.
On the other hand' while they worked in 4 under classic when viewing 
in a window,
Acrobat 4 did not work at all in full-screen mode. It just presented a blank
screen. So, the blank flash between slides in 5.0 can be seen as a 
form of progress!
