    Don't re-read all of the browser columns, then.  Why not use
fileAttributesAtPath:traverseLink: in NSFileManager to check the
modification time of the directory corresponding to the column, and if
it's newer than your last check, then update?
    This way, it won't need to re-load when files get updated, only when
they're added or removed.  (Which is what you want, right?)

    Nope!  I tend to listen to MP3 tunes by picking a new one after the
previous one ends.  Nothing matches the utility of the NeXT-style
browser for this use, so I use GWorkspace along with an xmms wrapper.
