I have been using the nightlies for the last month (when available) and 
I have noticed a significant slowdown when using a CMake 3.7.x based 
project. Slow to the point where on macOS I am getting constant spinning 
beach balls when I try to open the project, navigate the code using 
"jump to symbol" or "Command-K" to look something up. The lookup is fast 
but actually opening the file causes a spinning beach ball. Code 
completion takes far longer than normal when the file is first opened. I 
am trying to get a spin dump to help narrow it down but just wanted to 
let the devs know what I am seeing.

Our project has about 2,300 compiled files plus as many header files.
