Yeah, pretty much. The actual code path to unlink should be pretty
quick. It usually takes about a second here with one delete, but
if you delete hundreds of items using the playlist functionality
it's pretty easy to notice this behaviour. On remote frontends we
we did not delete the items from the UI in 0.22, but in trunk we
send a message after the unlink that will remove the item from the
list, this may take a second or two.
