Rollover images reloading

Threaded View

Something I've noticed on a few sites recently is image rollovers that
actually reload the image every time the image is swapped. One example of
what I mean is at /

When I run my cursor over the menu quickly, all the images disappear and
they slowly reappear as they get reloaded.

I noticed that one of the pages this happens on was a jsp - I haven't
noticed about the rest.

Why does this happen? Is it a coding deficiency, or a language limitation?

Just wondering - personally, I find it slightly annoying. I couldn't stand
to have that happening on one of my sites :)
