I believe LC retrieves the file contents of My LiveCode every time a 
menu opens so it can update menu listings for user libraries, plugins 
and other extensions. If there are a lot of files in there, it will take 
some time. With the unicode additions to LC 7 I'm guessing it is taking 
even longer than before and it is noticeable. The more files stored in 
those folders, the longer the delay. It's best to store only LC add-ons 
in there.
