Lightroom4: after editing a file in Color Efex 4, furthers edits to the (16bit, ProPhotoRGB) TIF file in Lightroom cause the image to completely disappear for half a second or so, then the "Loading..." popup shows up and the image is re-rendered. That happens for EVERY slider movement and adjustment.

A restart of Lightroom4 fixes the problem (until the next external edit).

The problem persists in Lightroom 4.2 RC.

Unfortunately, this still happens to me in 4.2 final, 4.3 RC, and 4.3 final.

UPDATE: this only happens when "Automatically write changes to XMP" is enabled in the Catalog Prefs/Metadata section.
