Both of these are almost certainly due to 
monkey-media/stream-info-impl/flac-stream-info-impl.c not working correctly.
I think Joshua Haberman was working on it at one point, but I'm not sure
how far he got...

Yeah, that'll be implemented post 0.5.0.

The slowness is a known bug (119460), it's just a little tricky to fix,
and I don't want to touch a lot more code before 0.5.0.  It'll be pretty
high priority for 0.5.1.

Yeah, I see this too.  It's definitely annoying.  I presume it's a
GtkTreeView bug, although I'm not sure.  I'll talk to the GtkTreeView
maintainer about it.
