The case in point is "C-h H", which (at least on Windows) takes an

On Windows, we don't support asynchronous timers, so the hourglass will only display if we spend a long time executing lisp code. C-h H is spending time doing redisplay (specifically finding fonts to display the various scripts), so the hourglass does not display.
