On Mac OS X, the busy wheel isn't the native, but a monochrome time glass. It would be better if the busy wheel was native.
I presume this applies to the open office framework as a whole. Perhaps it's specific to Java and can't be changed? I don't know.
Steps to reproduce:
1. .... Trigger the busy wheel (block the event loop), such as by saving a file.
Monochrome time glass.
Mac OS X's multi coloured, animated spinning wheel.

Thank you for your bug report!
I am sorry that you did not get an answer earlier.
A question: Is this the same issue as in bug 52263 -- “Replace custom ‘hourglass’ pointer/cursor by the operating system's default wait pointer everywhere”? See
I would think so ... What do you mean?
Another question, related: according to bug 52263, the old-style ‘hourglass’ pointer appears only sometimes, not always; in most situation, I see the “multi coloured, animated spinning wheel”. Is this the same for you? Or do you often/always see the old-style ‘hourglass’ pointer?
And could you please tell us which Mac OS X version you use, and if you use an old PPC or a new Intel-based Mac? This may be important to understand the problem ...
Thank you very much!
I see this wheel when saving documents in Writer.
