When I modify the attached bookmarks.html file in Firebird, whatever the change
(move, delete, etc...) CPU usage goes to 100% for over 10 seconds. That's quite
a while on an Athlon XP 1700+, IMHO.

Bookmarks file causing the high cpu usage

(slightly edited to remove my slashdot login info)
Reporter, if you import these bookmarks into a new profile, does the problem
persist with the new bookmarks file?  This is WFM with those bookmarks on this
machine.

Please try a new profile and build and import these bookmarks into the new profile.

Right, I've been seeing that too after I've reformatted yesterday... I really
should've tried loading it in a new profile before flushing everything, but with
yesterday's builds I installed all is working well.

Weird
