	If asmail is checking mail and you have clicked on it during this
procedure, sometimes the icon will do as you have described.  I have had
it stay this way for a period of time even.  Or possibly you have run out
of colors when it switches to animate, and hence it goes moot.  One
suggestion that might also have an effect is to comment out the LockShape
line and see if this remedies the problem.
