On my limited tests it does not seem to be slower than usual. However
you get the cursor+spinning circle cursor pretty much all the time and
pretty much everywhere, except when you place the mouse on top of the
"file content panels" and the file path combobox. It is quite
distracting and it gives the impression that there is a problem with
the program.

I have not seen this issue happen with 1.6.1.
