NOTE: You need to update:


(Ok, it would be best if you update the entire tree just to make sure)

Search times have increased dramatically in Kepler now that the 
DarwinCore DataSource has been added.

I added a temporary combobox in the Search tab that enables you to 
select whether you want to search "Ecological" data (EML), or "Museum" 
data (DarwinCore).

At the moment you the DarwinCore DataSource talks to a portal that 
search 10 different providers, hence the long search times.

Since the UI was "hung" during this time, this afternoon I made the 
search asynchronous, added a progress bar to the bottom of the search 
panel, and disabled the UI during the search. Now, at least we have some 
UI feedback during the search.

Let me know if you have any problems, I need quite a bit of testing, but 
you never know when doing asynchronous things.
