[Rhythmbox-devel] Search is painfully slow

I am an user of Rhythmbox and I have an improvement suggestion.

The search bar can be really useful if you have a lot of files in your sound library. However, the search bar in Rythmbox gets really (and I mean really) slow for large libraries. There must be some way to speed this up.

An user example: I have about four and a half thousand sound files in my library on a recently modern laptop (one year old, 2 gigabyte of RAM etcetera). When I begin to type a search string, already at the first character, Rythmbox starts to search for the specific character and can lock the entire program for a good 10-20 seconds or so. When the search is done, I can type in the rest of the characters in the search string. The procedure repeats itself for the rest of the characters, but with decreasing search time. The first character is the worst.
