[4.7.x] Temporary freezing of the editor

Every time I modify a setting under the Project Settings menu, or I attempt to access a new material etc, the entire editor halts for approximately 3 seconds before unlocking and going back to normal. This started happening when I upgraded from 4.4.3 to 4.7.
