Default STAT -la slows down computer

I've noticed that STAT -la on huge directories (5000+ files) really slows down my computer and makes it unresponsive. Task Manager also shows 99% for FlashFXP. It also takes a lot longer compared to using list.

STAT -la
List Complete: 610 KB in 1 minutes 4 seconds (9,5 KB/s)

LIST -al
List Complete: 741 KB in 12,64 seconds (58,6 KB/s)

Is FlashFXP busy processing the directory because it all comes in one go or why does it take so long?

STAT -la can be slower on huge dir listing because the list is processed after the list has completed and all in one huge chunk which uses more cpu compared to a LIST -al which is processed as the data comes in.
