I've been using ICS calendars, and I've been seeing slow reloads even 
from disk (file: uris), interfering with UI. It's possible that there's 
a sync URL load in there somewhere, or just slow JS processing.

Either way, that and the RAM consumption of Lightning made my 
Thunderbird entirely unusable, I was close to ditching TB. Luckily, I 
found the cause. It's fine since I split both into separate instances 
and profiles.

This really needs some attention, normal users won't know that Lightning 
is at fault and will drop TB.
