    I think that it is NSLU2 (or perhaps Windows and ethernet connected drives) issue.
    I just copied my collection from NSLU2 to locally attached USB disk.
    Browse Folders went from 2 minutes to 2 seconds
    I was running 6.5.x before and after the move.
    I copied because I was running out of space on the disk attached to the NSLU2 but I won't be rushing to put extra space there. Instead I'll re-use it to store a smaller number of large files (radio and TV show recordings).

    It's an interesting psychological phenomenon that one feels that one must provide more justification and reasoning NOT TO upgrade than TO upgrade.

    I figured as much, but what the heck; I need to be more patient, in general, anyway. "Slow and steady wins the race," and all that.
