Asset tool 'Autosearch' hangs for toon with lots of assets

Is anybody else experiencing the game hang from the autosearch feature trying to load ALL of their assets when they open the search tab in the asset tool?

This only would affect characters with a lot of assets, naturally. My other two characters don’t have this problem because they hardly have any assets, but I’d imagine this should be affecting a LOT of players by now.

Once again the main problem is that the autosearch feature in the Asset tool’s search tab is attempting to return a list of ALL of your assets because the search field is initially blank. Right now this is causing my game to hang while everything tries to load and it’s getting absolutely unbearable.

Anyone? No one is having their client hang when their toon has a lot of assets to load?

Is anybody having all of their assets load in the search tab without their game pausing?
