Lightroom 5 starts to slow down the system to a degree when mouse skips when you switch between Grid/Compare views many times. The app starts to flick and multiple "Bezel" windows start to appear in the task bar.
The issue started when I installed LR5 and around the same time added 3000 d800 photographs to my catalog.
No antivirus with real time guard - just on demand. I have a Window Manager, but I've been running it for a long time with no affect on LR. Anyway I disabled it with no result. I have no other utilities.
In addition to flickering inside the app. It slows the system when I minimize it. When LR is finally minimized the system is fine again.
Safe mode gives the same behavior. After a few changes between (C) and (G) interface slows down even for pinning side bars and minimize/maximize actions.
