In my case, I don't believe this is the explanation.  Often, I am  
changing text, not commands or adding/deleting math-mode stuff.  In  
any case, I have the window visible in most cases, and (I think) it  
has completed, rather than halted.  I will keep this in mind, for  
future occurrences, though.  Thanks for the observation.
