Bug Description

When opening a virtual repository on a directory which has many subdirectories (in my case, 212 subdirectories, which themselves have many subdirectories), Bazaar Explorer appears to freeze (Windows says it's "Not Responding") while it scans the subdirectories for branches. It should display some sort of progress bar or working indicator.

Some of this could also just be improved by making the 'find_branches'
functionality a bit faster.

I think my point was that it shouldn't block the UI then it doesn't matter how fast the scanning is, as long as it's decent.

Changed in bzr-explorer:

This appears to be a duplicate of the first entry in bug:453124 which has had no attention other than being moved to 'wishlist' status. Can I suggest the related issues there be looked at in association with this bug.
