Check any entries in the hosts file... such as those referring to Verisign. I have come across several clients who had installed a version of Photoshop that required additional entries in the hosts file to block assess to Adobe's software protection system.. and once these were removed, the spinning beach ball issue vanished completely.
Also, In the case of three more clients who had this same issue, they had instead... installed a large preset list of hosts to block to prevent spam/suspect websites/ads etc.. and once that list was cleared out, Logic worked perfectly without the spinning beach ball which had plagued them since they last updated Logic to 9.1.6
Additional info: A similar issue has recently been reported affecting the new Game Center App in Mountain Lion that prevents users from logging in to the Game Center server... and again,. the same fix involving the Hosts File, fixed that too.
One can only assume that a server or some servers Apple is using, was/were blocked via a Hosts File entry and once removed things now work as expected.
Hope this helps...
