The pauses you get sound like those from generating preview thumbnail 
images (pixmaps).

I don't remember when the code for this went in (so it could exist in 
0.19), but in 0.20, the preview pixmaps are generated before they're 
required (or in the background, when one needs re-created), so you don't 
have "pauses" in the list.  If that code went in before 0.19 and you're 
using 0.19 (or 0.19-fixes), that's not the issue.  If it didn't go in 
before 0.19, it will be fixed by 0.20 (soon).  :)
