(1) Start emacs --no-init-file
(2) evaluate 

    (fset 'foo
       [?a ?a ?a ?a ?a ?\C-a right ?\C-k return])

    This is a silly keyboard macro but it illustrates the point.

(3) Type `C-u 1000 M-x foo RET'.
(4) With my old pentium processor it takes about 15 sec to run the
    macro foo 1000 times. However, during that time the mouse
    pointer does not switch to a special shape (the hour glass) in
    order to indicate that emacs is busy.

    If you have a faster computer than my one you might want to
    increase the value of universal-argument in order to keep emacs
    busy for a sufficiently long time.
