Develop module does not load photos, or if it loads this happens desperately slow.

Until now, I have used catalog created wiht LR 4 Beta with LR4 full version without problems, but the problems started when I recently transferred old LR 3 catalog (around 20 000 photos) from to LR4. When starting "develop" module, the photos do not load att all, or if they load, it happens very slow.

This issue escalated yesturday, when I transferred around 141 photos from camera (Pentax K-5, file format DNG) to LR. I am able to edit a phots, alotugh starting develop module was always very slow. At the moment, it takes several minutes after selection from library / bottom strip until the photo can be developed.Sometimes the phot can not be edited at all - it seems to be that it is not transferring to Develop module at all.

It does matter if the photos are transferred from LE 3 catalog or directly from camera, the issue is same for all the photos.

In additional to that, feature "Auto Tone" takes some tens of seconds to perform whet the phtos are editable.

I made a further experimet by trying to generate a new catalog, but then the whole program crashes.

Sw version is 4.0, camera raw 7. Operating system Windoes Vista 32bit.

Are you using RC2 of Lr 4? If not, try it.

Also, you might have to recreate your preview cache and/or raw cache.

Performing "Optimize Catalog" from file menu did solve the problem,
The program still crahses when generating a new catalog, but this time new catalog is created and available when restarting the SW.
