There is a noticeable delay the first time the upvote or flag images are "hovered over". Can this be resolved by pre-caching (using JavaScript) or combining several images into a single file (using CSS)?

This also appears to be the cause of the "loading..." bug (?) that is occasionally (momentarily) seem when clicking to see the detailed the up/down votes.

All images are fully sprited now, so if you have one image, you have them all.

(there are some minor exceptions for a handful of SE 2.0 sites with special styling, but not for voting.)
