[KPhotoAlbum] Speeding up directory scanning

I thought for a moment that this patch made starting kphotoalbum *hugely* 
faster on OS X.  It used to be impossiblly slow -- taking over five minutes 
when a similarly-powered Linux box started in 20-30 seconds.  This is with 
just under 12,000 images, on a 1.2GHz G4 iBook.

Wondering if maybe OS X had an insanely slow stat() call, I updated to SVN 
head and then applied the patch.

I was excited to see that startup time dropped to ~30 seconds.  Just to get 
some good numbers, I removed the patch and rebuilt and retested -- still 30 
seconds.  I rebooted to make sure there weren't a bunch of cached inodes.  
Still 30 seconds.

AFAICT, the patch made no difference at all, but something did.  There was an 
OS X kernel update a few days ago, so I'm wondering if that was it.

	Shawn.
