I really love this little tool, but recently it's gotten really slow to open. Don't know why. Anyone else have this experience? There must be some setting. --May 2, 2013

This perceived 'slowness' comes from the fact that this plugin makes more than one mapping starting with <Leader>b, i.e., <Leader>be and <Leader>bv, if you don't use those and want just the <Leader>be functionality you can create, e.g., ~/.vim/after/plugin/disable_buff_explorer.vim file with the following content:

nunmap <Leader>bs

nunmap <Leader>bv

Is it possible to make it update the list, when I open a new buffer? Now I have to close it and open it again to refresh the list of buffers.
