I'm putting the work on file chooser optimization on hold until Kris
commits his async API changes for GtkFileSystem.

In the meantime, let's find out why Nautilus is slow :)

One big problem I found with the file chooser is that it is hard to know
when it is *really* done loading a folder and done displaying it.  Does
Nautilus have a place where it knows it is done loading?

I remember adding a patch at some point to gdk_beep() when a directory
was done loading, but this did not take into account the code that
actually displays the icon view/list view.  I don't know if once the
directory is loaded, Nautilus has another async layer to populate the
views and lay them out.
