is your ListStore sorting? I've discovered a similar problem and found
that inserting lots of rows into a sorted store is very slow. This
doesn't surprise me but what annoyed me is the fact that there doesn't
seem to be any API to switch sorting off (or freeze/thaw it). I have
worked around the problem by calling
gtk_tree_sortable_set_sort_column_id() after inserting all the
rows. This means however that I have to create a new store each time I
want to populate the store.
