    Yes, me too.

    It's a very strange and freaky sensation.

    After watching a few cycles of Mosiac and then going back to the desktop, I get a vertigo sensation. It's almost like the iMac screen keeps wanting to "grow" larger.

    Any others?

    I've actually heard many people say they've had very similiar experiences, and I won't be surprised if it hapens to me too qwhen my upgrade disk arrives (it's late =().

    Yes, it's normal :). It's a sort of optical illusion.

    Your eyes get used to watching a photo that constantly shrinks. So if you watch the effect for too long and then look at something static (e.g. a picture), your brain thinks that it will shrink. However, the image stays the same size so you see the picture coming at you.

    Not a very scientific explanation, but I hope you understand what I mean :p.

    It's the same sensation I get after driving for hours (10+). As you drive you watch the road pass underneath you, then when you stop for a break or something, it seems as if the ground is still moving.
