Well sf seems to be in read only mode.
This patch makes the progress bar in the room list dialog pulse slower.
Previously it pulsed every time a new room was received, and had a pulse
step of 10 until 100 rooms were downloaded, and then switched to a pulse
step of 100.
Now it pulses every time a room is received but no more than once every
100ms. And the pulse step stays constant at 10. This should fix the "my
connection is so far the progress bar is sucking up all my cpu" problem
some lucky individuals have had. Since my connection isn't that fast,
I'm not completely sure how well it works, but it seems good to me.
Simguy tells me it's better.
If you want to test you'll need to download the list on undernet on irc,
or something like that. Other protocols tend to download it too fast to
really see the progress bar.
