Ah, yes, of course - I suspected it might be something actually to do
with sqlite. I'll try that - thanks!

Banshee very slow when interacting with track lists

Status in “banshee” package in Ubuntu: Incomplete

Bug description:
Binary package hint: banshee

Banshee's great, but since I've added a few more songs it's become unbearably slow.

Scrolling up and down the library is ok, provided it's settled for a while, However, whenever a song finishes playing or I rate a track or skip a track there's a delay whist 2 of my 8 CPU cores are maxed out. The UI takes an age to redraw or respond to clicks. The delay can be just half a second, or sometimes around 5. This usually coincides with some network activity.

It makes interacting with the application nearly unbearable. Don't want to go back to Rhythmbox, but might have to :(

I have:
* Banshee 1.6 Beta 2 (1.5.1)
* about 5,300 songs in the library
* Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic 64bit
* 6Gb of memory and an i7 920 processor

Banshee extensions running:
* Audio CD Support
* Bookmarks
* Cover Art Fetching
* Digital Media Player Support
* IPod Support
* Karma Support
* Mass Storage Media Player Support
* MTP Media Player Support
* File System Queue
* Internet Radio
* Last.fm Radio & Scrobbling
* Multimedia Keys
* Play Queue
* Importers for Amarok & Rhythmbox
* Podcasts
