Extremely slow when playing music from a folder with lots of files (1 Viewer)

Whenever I try to play an MP3 file from a folder with lots of MP3s (say, about 2,000), MP takes a long time (about 2 minutes) to start playing it.

Playing more songs from the same folder occurs immediately, after the first one has been played.

I can see a lot of disk activity on the first play, so it looks as if MP is reading the whole directory before playing the first file.

Is this a normal behavior?
