Are they also using the same gui code? i.e. the same treeview and

We have similar performance problems with the treeview (opening nodes)
and the outputview (when much output is added at once, for example make

to read the callgrind output I have, or the parsing of cmake projects is
soo much worse that I can't find useful information in it.
