bookmarking all tabs (to the personal toolbar, maybe other locations) is slow, I can hear the disk grind

I have ten tabs open, and I do "Bookmarks | Bookmark All Tabs..."

I choose "Bookmarks Toolbar" as the destination.

It takes a noticeably long time and I can hear the disk grinding.

do you guys see this too?

I'm using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9pre) Gecko/2008040404 Minefield/3.0pre

I don't think this is a recent regression, and my apologies if this is a duplicate.
shouldn't that be running in batch mode?
for the most part should be fixed with bug 490742, at least the batching part. i've tried to add to bookmarks about 100 tabs and i've not noticed a so heavy disk grinding.
further improvements could come from bug 499458

Bug 451915 - move Firefox/Places bugs to Firefox/Bookmarks and History. Remove all bugspam from this move by filtering for the string "places-to-b-and-h".

In Thunderbird 3.0b, you do that as follows:
Tools | Message Filters
Make sure the correct account is selected. Click "New"
Conditions: Body   contains   places-to-b-and-h
Change the action to "Delete Message".
Select "Manually Run" from the dropdown at the top.
Click OK.

Select the filter in the list, make sure "Inbox" is selected at the bottom, and click "Run Now". This should delete all the bugspam. You can then delete the filter.
