It's an excessively long period of single tasking, as opposed to a
freeze, which to me at least means it doesn't come back again.

I re-discovered this the other week when running up NetSurf after
cleaning !Scrap as part of performing a backup. My fonts include ArialMS
and Cyberbit, both of which take about 30 seconds to even display 1% 
complete. I've now locked the cache file to avoid deleting it and having 
to undergo the long wait again - which is longer than I actually use the 
machine for in most months.
