UI hangs when doing a large search-in-files

N++ is my preferred place to search files/folders but this is about the only area I see performance issues in a great app.
If it’s searching a large set of files I often see the whole UI lock up immediately clicking ‘Find’ - even a “not responding” status - before the progress bar appears. I’m often working on resource-limited machines (disk especially) so I wonder if it’s waiting on a single very slow API call to enumerate the files to search or something, before the searching itself happens (which seems to work fine).
Hardly critical but a hung app is never pretty and makes one wonder if it is broken or just slow.
If you do enumerate the files first, it’d be neat in the progress bar to show how many there are?
