Big Red Hourglass Mouse Cursor Infinitely

This is what I now get on one user account on a Fuel of mine after login ... and no toolchest.
I wonder what this machine is waiting for, or the hourglass means at all. Hints appreciated!

If it's only on one user's account probably the first thing to look at would be that user's ~/.chestrc and/or ~/ .auxchestrc, fix it/them or delete and the user falls back to /usr/lib/X11/system.chestrc

I'd guess it's fm/fam related or the Xsession(|.dt) script hanging. One of the last things that run are the toolchest.
