Script Editor in Snow Leopard painfully slow after adding apps to Library

I have four different Macs that I use from time to time, and on each of them I notice a constant: adding more items to AppleScript Editor's Library window slows performance of mundane operations (opening a dictionary, switching between Library window and editor window, scrolling in the Library window, etc).

"The best solution I've come up with so far is to abandon the Library entirely for the menu item ""Open Dictionary..."" via Command-Shift-O. This brings up a list of scriptable applications that the OS is aware of. It defeats the purpose of the Library and it's ability to focus the current script at a given application, but then again, I never thought that the tell block was too hard to include on every script prior to Snow Leopard.

In the spirit of closing tickets, et al., I provide this answer and close my question."
