If youwant to be a test pilot, try out the attached fileIn.  As the preamble says...

Two little changes with big impact for halos in the world.
The first ensures dismissal of all halos (including world halos)
when you click in the world.

The second prevents world halos from noting the entire screen as damaged.
For this reason, there is much less delay when invoking or dismissing a world halo.

Please let me know if it works for you.
