Hello, If notmuch-hello includes a saved search with a slow query, switching to a notmuch-hello buffer is very slow due to notmuch-mode updating counts for search results. mjw1009 suggested "(setq notmuch-hello-auto-refresh nil)", which stops the counting and works around the problem.
Fundamentally, the problem is a slow query. On my laptop (Thinkpad T60), many things are pretty much instant, even though I have a HDD, no SSD: > ; time notmuch count 'tag:inbox and tag:list' > 25452 > 0.02user 0.00system 0:00.03elapsed 72%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 3852maxresident)k > 0inputs+0outputs (0major+1135minor)pagefaults 0swaps However, from-queries take their time: > ; time notmuch count 'not tag:replied and to:nils at dieweltistgarnichtso.net' > 5328 > 0.10user 0.15system 0:14.14elapsed 1%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 3472maxresident)k > 157544inputs+0outputs (0major+1039minor)pagefaults 0swaps mjw1009 can reproduce if the from-query contains an "@" and thinks the problem may be "something deeper down in notmuch (actually probably in xapian)".
