Spinning beach ball with external video on

I've noticed this on other systems too:

Currently I have source sequences of up to 3 hours of DVCProHD material. Mostly the whole system is fairly smooth, but when I try to shuttle through these sequences (which are on a SAS attached RAID - with very high read/write figures on aja speed test) with external video on I get spinning beach balls every now and again.

Turning thumbnails off seems to help a bit, but turning off external video and just scanning through the computer monitor fixes the problem.

I can see that this problem might arise on the FW800 attached raid, but the SAS raid should be able to pull frames quick enough surely? Anything I'm missing?

System is a 12 core Mac Pro with 12GB Ram.

AJA IO Express using PCIe card.

These are long sequences (3 hours) of DVCproHD.

Still get spinning beach ball a bit with external video off, just not as bad.
