Will you please tell us more information about your computer?

What kind of system are you in?

What kind of edition is your JRE?

I have been experiencing what I belive is a similar issue.

The output was correct about 99% of time time, without any flaw, using JRE 1.5, and MSIE 6.0.2800.1106 with a Dell using XP Pro. and SP1. (I just tried now, and it still froze)

As soon as I got a newer version of MSIE, 6.0.2900 as well as SP2 I began to see issues, such as the image would appear to be 'locked' and I was unable to pan the image. 

My issue is that I do not know if it is actually locking up, or if it is pausing becuase it is loading.  I have tried this with version 1.4 as well as 1.5 of JRE. 

The code looks like this:

<APPLET height=300 archive=..\..\ptviewer.jar width=400 code=ptviewer.class class="room1">
<PARAM NAME="file" VALUE='images/lobby.jpg'>
<div class="room1">Lobby</div>

<APPLET height=300 archive=..\..\ptviewer.jar width=400 code=ptviewer.class style="display: none" class="room2">
<PARAM NAME="file" VALUE='images/lounge.jpg'>
<div class="room2" style="display: none">Lounge</div>

and the thumbnail links have code that looks like this:

 <span style="cursor:hand;" onClick="show_pano('room1')"><b></b><br>
 <img src="thumbs/lobby.jpg" alt="Lobby"><br>Lobby</span>

 <span style="cursor:hand;" onClick="show_pano('room2')"><b></b><br>
 <img src="thumbs/lounge.jpg" alt="Lounge"><br>Lounge</span>

Now, what I thought was happening was that since the code was having all 5 (I only showed two in the example) images show up, it was overloading the user PC or something similar, so I tried to set it up using Iframes, where each one of the five panormaics were in its own shtml page and it still did the same thing.  I dont know if it relates to the fact that i am using shtml vs html, but there are SSI's being used.

It is almost as if I click to load a new panoramic, the previous one stays, and if i try to click on it before the new one loads, it will lock, until i click on the previous one, then click on another.

I wish I could be more specific, but I am not sure what exactally is happening or why... thus, why I am here.

In addition, it works without flaw in Firefox, and multiple computers - but all of the computer I have tried it on have been imaged to the same image.

In addition, I notice that when it locks, or prevents movement of the images, a second JRE will load up in my system tray.
