I agree with you 100% and have been complaining about this since day of release, with large libraries the search is very slow, it takes a while to search the track and then when it eventually finds it, it takes another 5 or so seconds to load it, then if you back out of search and go back into it, it first researches the last search before you can search again. Very bad and slow implementation of the search feature.
What confuses the hell out of me too is if you us RB linked to the players, the search is instantaneous when searching from the players to the RB database, Why can't the players use the same indexed DB on the drive that RB is using on the Mac? I have brought this to the attention of Pioneer and I hope something is being looked into, Have not really gotten a solid answer other then "its not too bad, We will let them know"
check how slow mine is, 23,000 tracks on a usb drive: http://vimeo.com/24804004
Once I defrayed the drive it sped it up a little but still slow
