Comment 1 Tomas Hurka 2012-01-25 14:35:35 UTC
This problem is specially visible in a larger heap dumps >600M., where opening heap dump is significantly slower for second half (opening progress is bigger than 50%). The computation of the references is also significantly slower (compared to other Operating systems).
Comment 2 Tomas Hurka 2012-02-01 13:03:30 UTC
Fixed in profiler-main
