Importing new photos into LR 4.1 is painfully slow

Importing raws and jpgs into LR 4.1RC is painfully slow, specially compared to LR 3.

Importing images in place from fast internal hard drive. Imports that used to take seconds in LR 3 now take minutes in LR 4.1.

"Sample" the process from the Activity Monitor while it's slow importing. Let's see where the time is being taken.
