LR 4.1 RC: Creating 1:1 Previews becomes slower the higher the number of selected pictures

I selected 500 CR2 images and clicked create 1:1 Previews in Library module. At the beginning it took 7 sec for one preview. After 400 previews and 5 hous later (!) it took already 1,5 minutes for one preview!

I cancelled the activity. Restarted lightroom and the previews were generated swiftly again.

Used system: Windows 7 64 bit, 16 GByte RAM, I7 processor, SSD 120 GByte, two other fast harddisks. LR and Raw cache on SSD, catalog, previews and photos on harddisk.

This also happened with LR 3.6 on Macintosh.

Try updating previews in catalogs with tens of thousands of images - it can literally take days (on the fastest/most capable hardware available).
