Not a particularly thorough test, I'll admit.
Hey Lokasenna!

It seems more likely to happen with larger projects and more CPU-demanding plugins, especially when there are lots of child tracks and folders underneath. I guess thereís some complex math happening under the hood when the parent folder track does its summing of nested child tracks and folders, but I only notice the bad hit performance-wise when there are plugins on the immediate parent track.

Iíve noticed this happen with only light processing on the child tracks, itís the heavier stuff on the immediate parent folders that causes the issue here.

Mixing, mastering and too much coffee.
