No problem Richard, fun tracking this stuff down.  After your last  
email, I now understand the exact reason for the slowdown.

I now plan to switch all my long name references over to use the  
control ID.  Everything in the doc says using the ID should be a safe  
way to uniquely identify a control but I've seen a few posts recently  
seeming to indicate that might not be the case (I know stack IDs  
change, just referring to control IDs).  There's a little trepidation  
on my part about that because I occasionally see posts that suggest  
that maybe there's issues with the uniqueness of IDs but hopefully I  
won;t run into them!
