jockey-text really slow to list drivers

jockey (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

sudo jockey-text -l takes around 40 seconds to show up the results, it seems too much.

I am running xubuntu 12.04, the problem is the same with normal kernel and lowlatency kernel

I have nvidia drivers and broadcom drivers on the additional drivers list

the package is at the last version from precise updates, so jockey-common is 0.9.7-0ubuntu7.11

The system is pretty fast cause I have 8 giga ram, SSD disk and i3 processor

I have to add that this happens only the first time you issue the command in the current session

This is probably due to the manner of cacheing that is used by jockey to keep that list on hand after it has been generated once. I'll leave deciding whether or not this is actually an issue, or if it's just a limitation within the program, up to someone more familiar with jockey.
