TYPO3 Element Browser does not work when large files are indexed

Oh, sorry, with "Backend" I meant "driver".
I guess this is because the indexing process is currently implemented in a blocking way, i.e. we first have to collect all required information before we can continue. This might take a lot of time for large files, esp. when they are stored remotely.
This would be fixable by only doing a quick indexing while accessing large files, and collect all other metadata asynchronously, e.g. in a scheduler task. We would have to maintain a queue of new, not completely indexed files.
