Lightroom 4.1 Performance Much Worse than 3.6

Every operation in Lightroom 4.1 takes 2, 3, or even 4x longer in 4.1 compared to 3.6 on the same machine. I am using the same RAW files from the same camera (5D Mark II). The entire GUI is super sluggish, taking seconds to respond to mouse clicks. It is extremely dissappointing and making post-proc way more tedious than it already was!

I have to say, I agree wholeheartedly. This release is a big step back. Lightroom used to feel super fast, now it feels like my Mac is choking on it. What happened?!
