iFolder 3.8 client intolerable startup time

Hello iFolder experts,

I have a law firm client we setup with iFolder 3.8. The server is OES 2 SP3 on SLES 10 SP3. They are putting all their case folders into iFolder. There are now several hundred separate iFolders and they are all shared with "Everyone".

Now whenever the iFolder client starts up or has to reconnect due to a server disconnection (which happens frequently), it can take anywhere from serveral minutes to 3 hours before it stops reading through available folders and gives control to the user.

After watching a Novell webinar last week, I got the feeling there will be no updates to iFolder is this true?

Anyone else using iFolder in a multi-user shared environment with hundres of folders?
Anyone come up with a good work around?
