Re: [Nautilus-list] Change committed that may affect the slowness

After Darin's big change here is what I get on my system:

Nautilus startup time:
  1.0.4: 24 seconds
  CVS: 27 seconds

"Music folder" double click from desktop until done loading:
  1.0.4: 11 seconds
  CVS: 12 seconds

Given that there's some (fairly large since I'm using a stopwatch)
margin of error here, I would say the problem has been fixed and that
1.0.5 is probably ready for release (at least as far as my system is
concerned ;-).

You rock Darin!
