SolidWorks Explorer slows when looking at project in vault

With the new SolidWorks Explorer released in 2007, I noticed an issue when clicking on a project with a alot of files in it (greater than 6,000). SolidWorks Explorer tries to refresh the dynamic list of files in the project and it spends too much time doing it. Any operation in this project causes SolidWorks Explorer to take about 20 seconds or so to refresh the list of files in the project list. This is very counterproductive and we need an option to turn off this dynamic refresh of the list of files in the project. If I wanted that I would just do a report on the project to see whats in there. Joy, do you know of anyway to ease our pain? We did not have this issue with previous releases of PDMWorks. It has been a step backwards for us in everyday use of the program.
