[Win] Rekord buddy freezes during column sort in Rekordbox collection

My Rekord Buddy Version: v2.2b4

My OS Version: Windows 10 Pro (1903)
Resolution: 1920 * 1080

Steps required to reproduce the problem:

  1. From the main screen, open your Rekordbox collection
  2. Within the Rekordbox collection, go to “All tracks”
  3. Click on the “Location” column

What I expected to happen:
All tracks to be alphabetically sorted based on the Location information, and the sorting to be almost instantly. Sorting is almost instantly when applied to the Artist and Title columns.

What actually happens instead:
Rekordbuddy freezes for 5 minutes, the title saying Rekordbuddy* (Not responding). After that, the sorting is succesfully applied. Somehow, this behaviour is not happening for the other columns I tested (Artist, Title): the tracks are sorted very quickly.
edit: the size of my Rekordbox collection is ~9000 tracks, residing on a hard disk (not a ssd), my pc has a Ryzen 3900x cpu.

Probably doing way too much path testing to compare the locations. Some of these operations can be expensive.

I’ll take a look and see if I can optimize this a bit. Obviously this won’t be high priority but I’ll get to it.

2.2b5 will have a small rework in this area. Let’s see if this is better or not.

I’ve tested it with 2.2b5. It seems to be unchanged.
