When I enter My Pictures, I see CPU usage climb to 100%. I think this is the result of opening and closing the picturedatabase too often. Why do I think so? Because in mediaportal.log, these 3 lines are repeated over and over:
31-5-2006 16:07:24 dbs:close:pictureDatabase.db3
31-5-2006 16:07:24 opening picture database
31-5-2006 16:07:24 picture database opened
31-5-2006 16:07:27 dbs:close:pictureDatabase.db3
31-5-2006 16:07:27 opening picture database
31-5-2006 16:07:27 picture database opened
31-5-2006 16:07:32 dbs:close:pictureDatabase.db3
31-5-2006 16:07:32 opening picture database
31-5-2006 16:07:32 picture database opened
31-5-2006 16:07:36 dbs:close:pictureDatabase.db3

It would be more efficient to open the database once, update/select all pictures in one sweep, and then close the database.

I could be wrong.
