large repositories in tortoise are torturously slow since 4.7.2 update
Created originally on Bitbucket by Anonymous
Update operations in moderately large repositories are very slow now and tortoise is sustained cpu usage for the duration.
This is even true if say i update from the command line, the command line returns very quickly but tortoise then sits at 100% of one core CPU
we're talking ~5 seconds to update from one point to another in the ui and < 0.5 in command line. commit ets also taking as long in the ui
reverting to 4.7.1 makes it fast again (but repeated branch names are broken) there's bugs for like the past 5 versions so I'm going back to 4.5.0
