Bug Description

Untar the attached archive into the Music folder. Go to the music scope and navigate through the tracks tab. Scrolling up and down the song list is very slow and jerky, and thumbnails take a long time to appear even after the cache is warm.

Something somewhere is likely blocking the UI thread when loading the images.

Not sure if it's something blocking the UI, the CPU usage of unity8-dash goes to 99.99% according to top so it may be we're doing to much stuff in the main thread?

The code at https://code.launchpad.net/~aacid/unity8/moreAsyncAudioCard makes things a bit better by making image more async so that it doesn't happen in the main thread.

It's not perfect yet but that's what i could find in a quick look.
