[Bug 82424] Re: nautilus uses 99% of cpu and responds very slowly

it uses not exactly 99% (it can be 86 or so... equally bad)
i use list mode for "/" (but the windows are 'objects')
i tried /dev  (690 items) - it takes more than 1.5 minutes and was not 
finished. i killed it (system monitor window) and cpu goes down.

if i open /lib (129 items) then it takes approx 20 sec and it displays. 
when even teh display part not visible is finished, then the cpu usage 
goes down.

i tried on another partition (ntfs format, my root is ext3):
the same effect.

by the way beagle does not work on both of these partitions (it works 
only on /home)

i hope this helps you to find the bug. thank you for your efforts!
