Problems with preview resolution on a second Monitor in the Develop Module of LR 5.2

I am using the new LR 5.2 and have a problem in the Develop module.

Here are the specs for my computer. Windows 8 Pro 64 bit, Intel i7 -2600 @ 3.40GHz - 16GB ram, Two Dell 2007 monitors Nvidia GTX 560 ti. My workflow has not changed and I am using one monitor for the program and the second for viewing.

This problem only started after installing the 5.2 update. I have the same settings for importing previews at 1:1 as I did with LR 5.0. When I open a file in Develop the resolution of the image on the program monitor is a high resolution image. I can zoom to various levels and it remains sharpe. The image on the second monitor is low and will take a long time (from a few seconds to minutes) to change to high resolution. During this time there is no dialog or indication that LR is building the views. This occurs long after the files have finished importing, days later.

Sometimes it will not change at all. In these situations I have to change to the Library module for an instantaneous change to the high resolution image. The program appears to have the high resolution previews but hangs up while trying to display them to the second monitor.
