"Processing query" ... dialog box

What specifically causes this dialog box to appear when you have NOT execute a FIND command?


I have layouts that use portals and some of them are sorted and some of them are filtered and I see this dialog every time I change from Layout Mode to Browse Mode.  I have not invoked any FIND commands and there are no script triggers on the layout.


I've been seeing this dialog ever since FileMaker 15 .... maybe even 14 ... and I'd like to make the portals show the new circular refresh icon instead if that's the cause of it.


Also, in my experience the cancel button does nothing unless you have an hour to spare.  Otherwise, I have to force-quit or use the Admin Console to disconnect myself from the server.
