[Users] Workaround for slow message list scroll and message display

Hi all,

Every version of Claws I've tried has been very sensitive to what's
loaded and using resources on the computer. So when I have three
different browsers each with 3 different youtube videos, every one of
which has a plugin-containe process, the whole computer slows down, and
Claws slows down more than most.

When I kill off the gratuitous browsers and youtubes, system
performance for the most part returns to normal. But Claws Mail
continues scrolling slowly and displaying slowly.

The workaround is: Once you've killed all the extraneous processes,
close and restart Claws. It will be much faster, possibly by an order
of magnitude. I'm even considering doing a prophylactic Claws restart
every morning.
