Re: How to find out if I own a lock?

Why not display the filenames in the browser immediately, and fetch
the properties (or update whatever else needs updating) for just the
files being displayed currently, which is not going to be more than
about 100 at a time, in a background thread and update the display
when you get the results back? This allows for a snappy UI and it
being up to date. You could show a little spinning wheel or
something when you are fetching stuff in the background.
