OT: "progress" bar loading map

I've been playing with video drivers (trying to find one that will work 
with my new 6800 GT on an XP64 system) so I'm seeing the "rebuilding 
shader" message a lot. The progress bar loading a map just stalls around 
48% and it's not clear if the system is hung. The shader generator really 
needs some kind of indicator to show that it's still going, perhaps to give 
some idea of how much progress is being made.

I found a 77.60 driver at Guru3D and I'm hoping it'll fix the giant 
rectangular shadows under vehicles. Supposedly nVidia is releasing a bunch 
of drivers at their "event" on the 21st so maybe an official 64-bit driver 
will be out that day that can deal with BF2. (They're also giving away free 
copies of BF2 with attendance.)
