I have a directory (500MB, 30 files) which contains mainly 'exe' (setups
for TB, FF, OO etc.). If I try 'ls -l' in this directory, the first time
it take about 30 seconds to list the files. After the first time, the
listing is almost without delay. The same happens also with 'ls -l
When there is the 'hang' (30 secs.), Task Manager shows that AVG9 takes
about 50% of CPU: this occurs *only* with 1.7.6 but _not_ with 1.7.5,
with which 'ls -l' is almost immediate, regardless of the number and
type of files.
Obviously I have tested this, each time, with a 'fresh machine', to
avoid 'cache' effects.
The system is WinXP SP3, AMD Athlon 64X2DC 2.03GHz, 1.75GB RAM.
