Ashesh, Murtuza, Surinder,

Any thoughts on how we can achieve this easily, and where we're
lacking notifications? We did have activity notification in the
treeview, but that never worked overly well and now I come to think of
it, I don't recall seeing it recently. I'm thinking we need something:

- On treeview node click

- On dialogue open and OK

- On Wizard steps

- Possibly in the debugger, when stepping?

I would think all that we need is to set the mouse cursor to 'progress'.
