What's your screen size?
I think Lightroom will build the standard previews on the fly, if the pre-built previews are smaller than is required to fill your screen. That explains why you're seeing the Loading message when you have only 1024 previews rendered — Lightroom re-renders standard previews at a larger size (probably even 1:1).
Excellent suggestion. I had a nagging suspicion that it might have to do with that. I'll set my resolution to 1024 from the 1400 it is now and report back. Thanks.
Thank you, that was it. At 1024 screen resolution the image didn't display the loading message.
