ReSharper 8 Performance Issue

I was performing quick fixes on some code and noticed that after  applying a quick fix (say use invariant culture on .ToString() or remove  redundant cast), live code analysis would consistently take two seconds or more to complete and if I applied the quick fix and then press Ctrl+Alt+PgDn to go to the next code issue, Visual Studio would effectively freeze while live code analysis is running.

I decided to get a performance snapshot (ReSharper | Help | Profile Visual Studio) to see if Jetbrains can identity and fix the root cause of the issue, but the strangest thing happened. As soon as I turned on profiling, the problem went away completely. When I apply a quick fix now, live code analysis completes so quickly that the yellow caution sign briefly flashes as it should.
