2008.8 has the same problem.  It also uses qpe to scan all the data on 
the SD card at boot.  This is why it's really slow right after it boots 
(eg: seconds to echo keypresses in the dialer...).  I use tangogps and 
it wants to index all the map tiles, so it takes *hours* to scan my SD 
card after each boot...
