A change has been added to the Git repository to leave the "Rendering Took"
message there until there is a certain types status changes or you do a
File->Load.  Originally when GG changed the code, we just picked something
to clear it and it seemed OK for us when rendering a 20 second video!!
Sometimes the program code dictates the outcome and so user suggestions
aren't feasible -- this wasn't one of those times!!

But the 6-hour scenario you mentioned, along with the "arrg" got a real
good laugh here.  The builds at the end of the month will have this fix
in.    ...Phyllis/GG
