 I've found (using strace), that qpe enumerates all files under
 "/media/card" recursively. This process takes very long (partly because I
 have more than 4500 files on the microSD card and I will have about 400000
 files on the microSDHC card). There is no apparent reason for qpe to do
 this (and even if there was, it could be done better, like explicitly
 specifying search locations for qpe.) Thus, this behaviour is a bug and
 should be switched off (at least in case of default configurations).
