Running 4.60 on many of the machines, and various other versions  
elsewhere (my desktop for example doesn't seem to slow down that  
much).  The problem is noticed when someone sends a mail, and Pine  
goes to write its file carbon-copy to the sent-mail folder.

I'll be happy to discuss this more with you if you like, but should  
probably do it off list since this isn't a Cyrus issue.
