Running Terminal services on Server 2008 x64, Office 2007, Have one user that experiences constant flashing if cursor-hourglass in MS Word and Excel in their remote session only.  The same word or excel docs accessed from the "local" computer or any other users remote session work as normal.  In Excel it appears as though the columns and cells as well as their headers flash as well.

The problem was not in the computer or the software, have swapped all of this out.  I think there is electrical interference close to the workstation.  Possibly the Cell Phone tower that is directly out the window, less than 100 feet away.

No Its wired.  If you take the laptop out into the hall the problem goes away.  Tried cables, different network jacks in separate locations, different ports on the switch in the wiring closet, different cables in the wiring closet, even a completely different laptop in the same location has the same problem.
