Thunar very slow to change directories in "Tree" view

I am running 2 systems, one with XFCE version 4.3.99, the other 4.4.  On both, Thunar in "Tree" view is very slow to read the first directory that is clicked on, up to 20-40 seconds delay and using all CPU resources.  After that first delay, subsequent directory clicks (openings) are fast, unless I go up to the root level, then there is a veeerrry long delay again.

Shortcut view is fine and always reads quickly,  what can I do to speed up the Tree view?
Thanks

Re: Thunar very slow to change directories in "Tree" view

Here's some very interesting information on this (to someone, I hope!):
If I open Thunar from the panel, click File System on the left (tree view), then /etc, it takes 53 seconds to load.
If I open Thunar from a terminal, it takes 22 seconds for the same process.  Here's the terminal log:

Re: Thunar very slow to change directories in "Tree" view

Well this is strange, if I open thunar from the terminal with strace, Thunar itself takes a couple seconds longer to load because of the hundreds of strace messages being logged, but there is NO delay when I click on the /etc or other directories!

I also noticed in htop, there are normally a couple Thunar --daemon's running.  When I click on /etc to open it,  I think I see 8 of them!??

Re: Thunar very slow to change directories in "Tree" view

There should only be one running thunar instance on your ststem (if you use DBus, which is highly recommended).
