When the option "press and hold" for right click is activated in Windows 7 (pen and touch settings) the cursor always hangs for the first second of drawing a line - it appears to "wait" for the right click; this can be observed by a small circle appearing at that moment.

This setting can be found under Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Pen and Touch Input > Pen Options
