Summary: Opening new window is slow when bookmark toolbar enabled and lots of bookmarks.

I have a bookmark file with somewhere between 500 and 600 items in it, about 50 of which are in folders.

If the bookmark toolbar is enabled, it takes on the order of 8-10 seconds to open a new browser window. This happens whether or not the bookmark toolbar is actually enabled, and regardless of how the window is opened. Traces from the Windows Task Manager indicate that the CPU load is 100% during the delay.

If I disable the bookmark toolbar and restart K-Meleon, new windows open in less than a second.

(Note that this is on a Pentium-Pro 200Mhz machine; one would not expect this to be a noteworthy problem on significantly faster computers.)

Moving this to the bookmarks plugin.
I assume it is a known issue considering a comment in the source code about bookmarks toolbar (function DoRebar):
  // disabled to fix 'create new window pauses for several seconds' bug

I think the problem was that the toolbar folder was set to the root folder, so it was populating each new toolbar with every bookmark in there. For now, I just placed a cap on the number of buttons it adds to the toolbar. Nobody should see it unless they're running at 2048x1536 and maximize K-Meleon. :-)
