384MB / 2GHz celeron / running mandriva-2007 / xfs on all relevant partitions.

I noticed something else. There is a _huge_ amount of disk access during that 
few seconds loading time. I have the store all metadata in image _and_ 
database option checked. The images are not large - max 1.5MB.
Also its not the images or machine. Because, showfoto doesnt take that long or 
doesnt cause that much disk access.

I will try to figure out whats going wrong.

The direct codepath to jpegloader is same - I was wondering if the imageeditor 
is trying to do something in another thread maybe ? Dunno ... but I have the 
source, so I wont complain ;-).
