I stumble over a strange behaviour of my keyword-catalog when entering keywords. If I add a keyword to say three already added, that is I add the fourth one at the end, it takes a long time to find this new keyword in the existing list. However, if I add this keyword at the beginning of the entries, performance is smooth.
To illustrate: say we have a photo with
kw A, kw B, kw C
Now you add kw D as follows:
kw A, kw B, kw C, kw D --> LR takes a long time to find kw D in the keyword list.
But if you add it
kwD, kw A, kw B, kw C --> LR acts smoothly and with the usual speed.Anyone has an idea what could be the cause of this and how to cope with it?

The KW-catalog has some 40'000+ keywords
