Yes, I can see how that could slow things down ;).
Just out of curiosity, why do you use such large directories, especially
over a network file system (see below)?

This, too, is important, yes!
Other programs may not be using Qt, and Qt in turn may handle network
drives differently. So I can see how that may slow things down.

I wonder if Matthias has a similar "non-standard" setup?

Anyway, can somebody tell me at which Windows version the Qt dialog
starts to look particularly alien, and at which version the bookmark
features was added? Those were the main reasons for issue 357
(http://code.google.com/p/texworks/issues/detail?id=357), AFAIK.
