I can believe that, if you have 20000 songs.  Assuming your hard drive
has an average 8ms seek time, .0008 * 20000 = 160, or about 2 minutes. 
Factor in rotational delay and other overhead, and it sounds about

We have plans to optimize the library refresh so that if none of the
toplevel directories changed, then it'll skip them, but it will be a
fair amount of work.

How many is a lot?  Even a few seconds sounds fairly high.

I just tested it out again with 15000 fake songs in my library.  On my
1.3GHz Centrino laptop with 1GB of RAM, clicking on pretty much any
artist took less than a second, even ones with 1000 songs.  Switching
back to "All" seemed seemed to be at most 2-3 seconds.

No, definitely not.

Did you actually run yammi on your machine yourself to compare?  The
comparison linked from the Yammi web page is against an absolutely
ancient Rhythmbox version

Are you sure you're using 0.6.5 and not 0.5.x?
