What does "half the speed" mean?
Compared to what?

I just tried the same change (on 4.3.2) and I get a progress dialog which 
shows percentage (obviously estimates, it vanished befor reaching 100%).
Switch from Dolphin to Konqueror took about 6 seconds, switch back about 2.
First value would probably also be 2 seconds on hot disk caches.
