Slow editing GFX with "crosshair cursor"

If I turn off the “crosshair cursor” I get MUUUCH smoother editing, graphic update wise. With the “crosshair cursor” ON the cursor feels sluggish when editing with an object handle. Suggestions?

I’ll BUMP this question since this issue has been around since Cubase 5, and now also in Cubase 6. It’s really horrible editing regions with the crosshair on rendering the feature useless, which is really unfortunate since I love it… but can’t use it.

I’m using a Mac Pro 2009 dual CPU 2.26ghz, 6GB RAM… so no slouch machine. Help!
