64 vs. 32 bit mode

I actually switched to 64 bit before I first launched the app. Having noticed the slowdown versus 1.4.1, I'm now trying to run LR2 in 32-bit mode. Surprisingly, it feels a little faster! (at least I think so...)

My C2D MBP is maxed at 3GB RAM, so while the CPU and OS are 64 bit capable, I don't really have the RAM to make it fly. That may be a factor too.

I'll need more time to judge LR2 overall, but in spite of some slowdown new features are quite compelling. There's a good chance of performance optimizations coming later, as was the case with LR1 AFAIR.
