Sorry, I've just re-read what you wrote and think I misunderstood. You mean 
the busy dialog? MythBusyDialog - also in base.xml, the 'clock' is a flipbook 
animation, you can use any images at all or resize and recolour the images. 
You don't even have to use a image, or animation, there are no requirements 
for a busy dialog aside from the message area.

See Terra for a contrast.
