	Huge playlist? The tree structure that holds the playlists need to get loaded 
into memory and sorted before it can release the interface to the user. If 
you've got a really big tree, it will take time to sort. This is a reality 
along the lines of, "if you have mass, gravity will act on you." Smaller 
playlists and/or playlist hierarchies (playlists within playlists) will help 
solve this "problem". Setting you default shuffle mode to None will help with 
initial load times.
