Unfortunately, I have both of those features turned off (text in icons
and directory sizes) and am getting
this delay after the windows contents have been displayed.  So I wonder
what could be going on?
Is this perhaps a configuration problem? I am using the most current
nightly builds.

The reason the window is un-responcive is the excessive cpu utilization
by Nautilus when opening
a new window (note, that is after the windows contents have been

So, just to summarize this problem again:

When I open a new window (or change to a different directory), the
window's contents are displayed
and for a period of roughly 25 seconds after the contents are displayed,
there is a lot of CPU cycles 
being used by Nautilus.  The CPU utilization is so much so, that the
Nautilus window is un-responcive
until the CPU consumption stops. 

Should I file a bug report about this?
