Which surprises me, but I guess at least it only has to happen once.

Probably the best immediate solution would be to change the blist
parsing from the dom-style we're using now to a sax-style parsing,
which should be straightforward with libxml2. We'd probably hit
problems if we tried to continue before the blist is finished parsing,
but we could at least not block any UI on it.
