this is not so much a problem as much as it is an annoyance...

occasionally, I'll double click on a folder and it'll spin in the lower right-hand corner forever as if it's a huge list of files.

I've let it spin for awhile and my workaround has been to hit the back button and open the folder again - presto - the files show up instantly.

Anybody know what's going on?

only 256MB Rolling Eyes

I just don't get if I stop the operation, go back to the parent folder, and open again, it opens instantly (just like it does normally)
