Do you mean listbox or listview control? I'm not convinced that their
memory management is 'crap', it's just that it's A) generic, and B)
involves creating a second copy of all your data.

Steve already does this - this is certainly the biggest performance win.

>2) Use a virtual listcontrol instead that does not handle the strings

Yes, that might well be better for big commits (for example), because the
data is already all loaded into memory. That said, most of the time spent
loading the commit listview is currently spent looking up icons for the files.

I am about to post a patch which fixes some of this, though I haven't
bothered to go to a virtual scheme, which is a load more hassle.
