weird performance issue

weird performance issue

loading the oldest commit from a very large repo (jquery) takes no time at
all to load with commit lookup.  loading the master head commit though takes
well over 30 minutes.  I'm not sure if i'm missing something, but does this
mean its impossible to traverse only a few recent commits?

if this is an issue, i'll file on github.  if not, could someone explain how
to work around this issue?

Hey Tim,

are you using "master" or the development branch? Can you post the
code that is taking 30 minutes?

Cheers,
Vicent Marti
