Yes, that discussion is about the same issue. I must have missed it (although most of the discussion has been since I searched).
If you have some time, I'd like to try and figure out why you hang up for 15-30 seconds when you move your mouse over that toolbar. It would be best if we could resolve that underlying problem so you and others don't need to turn off the toolbar.
Can you give me the steps that lead to this problem and specifically what command you're running? Also, it is possible we may need your model to reproduce... can you get it to happen with simple surfaced models? If you need to give us a model to reproduce, can you open an SR with your reseller and then pass along the SR number to me?
Thanks in advance,
I don't have time to get real deep into it right now, but it only seems to be that bad on imported models with a huge number of edges and surfaces, never on simple models, and I don't think (though I'm not certain), not on native files. Usually it is with the delete face command.
Ps. When I say huge, I'm talking 10K surfaces or more.
