Preview generation is a separate issue (btw, thanks mdean for the
r22456 commit!).  While you're waiting for preview images to be
generated, at least you can see that you're at the Recordings page.
The problem I'm talking about is a multi-second delay going from the
main menu page to the Recordings page, in which it appears that you're
still stuck at the main menu page.  It wasn't a problem in 0.21
because the text on the main menu page would be erased while the
Recordings page was being rendered.  I hope that's a clear enough
