Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately in this case it doesn't help.

Here's a tiny test program that works for me with gtk2. It just uses:
gdk_window_set_cursor( win->window, busy_cursor );
That program works, as does a translation into Fortran. But I'm still not
having any joy with my display monitor. Maybe the only convenient fix is to
show a window with a message "Reading database" during the read and then
create the monitor afterwards.
To Igor: I thought that a progress bar in activity mode had to be prodded
to show the animation, which is not possible while I'm doing the read.
I'm now really confused -- I've reordered some of the code so that the
set_cursor call precedes putting a message in the status bar. And the
status bar updates but not the cursor.
