Everything works flawlessly, but on my Mac a nasty problem has developed: when I open a WP document, be it locally on my Mac or on our server, the document will open fairly quickly but then the cursor turns to the clock symbol for about 15 seconds, meaning I can neither change nor print the document for a time that seems endless. However, if I open a document that is defined as "stationary" there is absolutely no delay. The problem happens with any user on my Mac. The problem disappears for local documents if I unmount all server volumes (Xserve G5, OS X 10.3.9 Server).

      I would first upgrade your copies of WP from 3.5.4 to 3.5e, which is a
      better release in many respects. That might solve the issue. Otherwise,
      does the server use preferences or cache files? Deleting/cleaning them
      might do the trick. Please let us know if it doesn't.
