Hi mouser,

Another of my "inner workings" questions. On my slow work machine, when FARR is held up on a slow directory scan, even though I searched for only aliases the alias list does not show until the disk activity stops (this relates to a bug I posted). I wonder whether having the directory searching as a seperate thread to the main program execution would be another way to stop this pause? I assume it is quite complicated to do but I'm curious for your thoughs on it.
