Tom Collins <firstname.lastname@example.org> and others pointed out that there's a little checkbox in the MountCache Cache dialog that comes set to Disable Custom Icons (see my complaint in TidBITS-254). I presume Casa Blanca included that option because it can slow down the disk to use it, but Tom said he hadn't noticed any speed differences. So now I can have my custom icons and my 100- plus percent speedup. My mistake is doubly embarrassing since, while visiting Casa Blanca's offices this spring, I suggested the name MountCache for Drive7's utility for mounting removables and providing driver level caching.
