media library uses way too much cpu

I'm monitoring performance on the media library window. When I make selections, my cpu usage blows up to 100%. The whole window is abysmally sluggish. Is this going to be fixed in the next release or is the problem specific to my system?

p4, 2g
1g ram

Then do what I did. Re-install Winamp3 but WITHOUT the Media Library. The Playlist Editor is MORE than I need and does not have the "bloat" of the Media Library.

If you want to do that then do it this way...

1. First, copy/save all your skins in the Winamp\Skins folder to a temp location
2. Completely uninstall Winamp3 via Start > Programs > Add/Remove Programs
3. Completely delete the Winamp3 folder and all folders within
4. Reinstall the latest public release of Winamp3, but make sure you do NOT install Media Library. Uncheck it. (see this screenshot - nomedialibrary.gif)
5. Download/install the wa3update patch
6. Move all your saved skins from the temp location back into the Winamp3\Skins folder
7. Start up Winamp3 without Media Library support
