Description of problem:
Attaching files to emails is now very very slow. I think the problem is in the file selection component, which got tedious in FC3 and is now downright impossible. After the most recent thunderbird update, this takes a minute or two before it shows the files. In my home dir, I probably have 20 directories, and some have thousands of files each, and so when I tell it I want to find something in my home, there is a long lag. I think it is building a map of all files.
I really hate this point and click file selector, and wish I could type a file name in and not wait for the display to update.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new email message,
2. choose attach and point and click to the top of some big directory structure
wait a long time to see file list on right side.
Actual Results: it is slow
Expected Results: it was fast before most recent changes.
The file selector is everywhere else. It's not thunderbird's fault the file
selector is slow for you. That's a gtk2 issue if anything.
