The proper approach isn't to disable the feature (which is why we don't
have any approach to disable it, currently***). The proper approach is
to fix your video card/driver/OpenGL configuration. OpenGL shouldn't
get "stuck" for 10-15 seconds on anything--after all, OpenGL is used for
real-time rendering of video games, and if games got stuck for 10-15
seconds at a time, people wouldn't play them. ;) (Yeah, I realize you
were likely looking for the quick workaround until you can figure out
the root of the problem, but maybe if you give it a bit of time on the
list, someone will help you figure out the issue.)
Perhaps you need to reinstall the nvidia drivers? Or perhaps you're
having a problem with the video card overheating?
*** Eventually, menu transitions will be controlled by the theme--and we
will offer more/different transition types.
