This cursor also appears when you click on a desktop icon in Windows
and you're waiting for the application you're starting to put up a
window, and it doesn't look like it's application driven.  (Sure, it
could be, if the first few lines of every app are "turn on the
hourglass", but I think it's a function of the windows shell, not the
application you're starting.)
