Thanks, yes, that is a bug.

Wing adds the files in the background -- was it definately done w/ adding
the folder?  Could be a bug also, I've noted it.

Yes, obviously we need to resolve the speed issues on Windows!

I see this sluggishness also on a win2k vmware image so I hope we can
fix this soon.  It may be as simple as a build problem since we fixed
CPU load very similar to this that first appeared in 2.0rc1.

Sorry about that!
