current known issue that still need to be worked on are :

- Mime list is loaded ( a directory load ) on a single icon click.
  That is normal behavior in order for exemple to add the View as Item
  in the Open With menu.
  But this is also done when double clicking the directory (which should
  end up with the directory loaded so we don't have to load the mime list
  first). I am on this one.

- There is an issue with directory count that slow things down,
  Darin is working on it.

- Home directory is slower to load than other directory,
  Just turn async job debuging on and you'll notice many more activity
  than for a simple directory load. Many of theses activity can probably
  be avoided.

- Opening a new window is slow, this could be really speeded up
  if we shared the two view in the case of opening a new window
  from an already existing one (as IE does).
  I also think that we might be doing thing in the wrong order,
  like loading the directory before the view component is ready.
  It was the case a few weeks ago, need to check again, it might
  have been fixed with the other bug fix we checked in.

- Startup time.
