After exporting a large number of jpegs (in my case ~800-1000) Lightroom begins to become laggy. The biggest issue is switching back and forth from full screen mode. It takes upwards of 30 seconds for LR to become fully responsive after going fullscreen (ctrl + shift + F) . Restarting LR drops several GB of used ram and the program becomes responsive to all user inputs.
I didn't notice this in 5.4, so I'm a little worried we're going backwards on the issue of performance killing bugs.
Are other people noticing this as well or is it related to unique/ specific hardware setups?
There is a GDI Objects leak in LR 5.5 on Windows so I wouldn’t be surprised if there are other issues.
