Indexing Thread Locking

I'm playing around with the indexing module and I'm seeing my ui threads get locked when it's (re)building the index.  I'm not sure if this is due to table locking (or perhaps some sql ce locking limitation) or if it's an issue with the items being indexed prior to the response being sent.  Any ideas?

Is it causing exceptions?

So the issue is latency?

I was just curious if you had run into this before.  Basically I have about 10,000 items that need to be indexed when the search index is being rebuilt, and while the process is going on, sometimes a page will pop right up, and sometimes it'll spin for 5 minutes until it returns.

Five minutes sounds like a lot. In theory, other requests should hit other threads, which should run more or less at normal speed. Maybe Sébastien would have some insights on this.

Well I'm going to try this out on an sql server instead of sql ce and see if it's an odd locking issue.
