...is for developers to remove the stupid turbo reloading. I know it was implemented as a fix for some memory loss, but it is costing more for people with slow computers.

The whole process of shutting down and starting up takes 20-30 seconds on my home computer, and uses a lot of processor power. And then I have to select a profile again (my shortcuts have -p so I'll never have to see profilemanager again, or so I thought) and some people have complained that it resets the master password (I don't use master passwords so I don't know).

I have to keep a window open to prevent this, which really defeats the whole purpose of turbo mode. :(

I don't mind experimenting with this fix to the memory problem, but it should be done only in the trunk. The 1.0 release worked really well, I hope you don't change the way it works.
