Frenetically Blinking Caret

Why does the text caret, when I'm posting a message (like right now), frenetically and rapidly blink? It's as if someone wrote a tight loop that constantly refreshes the posting text area to see if the next character's been typed yet.

Surely this isn't what's being done. That would be very hackish. But what is the problem?

I think it may have something to do with the animated Graemlins. After I click on one, the curser settles down to its regular blink.

Not on mine...still in an infinite redraw. Incidentally, I've used IE, Netscape, Mozilla, and just two weeks back I switched to Firefox (awesome browser, by the way). It happens on all of them, so I don't think my browser's possessed. My box, maybe...
