Collab freezes for a few minutes on updates for projects with 5000+ assets



What happened:

For some projects, when downloading a small update (like an added folder or edited prefab/script), the Editor freezes for several minutes on 100% instead of finishing right away. After waiting 4-10 minutes, Collab finally finishes and starts to import changes. This issue repros on Windows 10 machines, not on OSX.

Does not repro with new, empty projects.

Repro Steps:

1. Download test project onto two locations, one of them a Windows 10 machine and the other either on the same machine or a different one running on any OS.
2. Open both projects, edit a prefab's transform on the non-Windows 10 instance, save changes and then Publish them.
3. On the Windows 10 project instance, Update to get the latest change.

Expected: Update finishes shortly after reaching 100% and Editor becomes usable.
Actual: Collab Toolbar freezes at either 0% or 100% of progress, Editor freezes for between 1-4 minutes before resuming normal operation.

Workaround: Oddly enough, using Collab History to Restore to an earlier commit and then going back to the latest version allows updates to finish as expected until the Editor restarts.

    Resolution Note (fix version ):

    The reason we're closing this as Won't Fix is because of the following:
    - This bug has a workaround. (Open the Collab History window, then, after making a small change, press Restore to revert to the latest commit. The freeze will no longer happen until the Editor is restarted).
    - While we do have a consistent repro, fixing the bug could balloon into taking a month or two to finish, including resolving any other bugs that might come up because of the fix.
    - For the above reason, Collab is getting a UX redesign, with the team's full focus being on this work.
