Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] Snappier navigation

Something in one of the updates over the last year (which depending on your distro may have only just got to 
you) has played havoc with many of the plugins. If I use one of my favourite ones I have the same issue as 
your friend of it taking minutes to open and being slow. My library is roughly half that size. I'd suggest 
turning off every single plugin and seeing if it makes a difference, if it's good like that then turn them 
back on one at a time.

On my six year old laptop, rhythmbox takes about two seconds to start
with a similarly sized library, and there's no appreciable delay in switching
between playlists.

Interesting. So it's not Rhythmbox's fault. The thing is, I've seen it
run equally slow on another machine. At the time I blamed that machine's
low specs, but the current machine should be up to the job.

I'll check if --debug can tell me anything new.

This person has all audio files pretty much lumped in ~/Music, with
hardly any subfolders. Could that affect performance?
