So what machine/OS are you actually using the Espruino IDE on?
Just a bit of background - the current project sandbox code calls into Chrome to try and find the file on the disc. If the file doesn't exist then it never actually gets a callback, so it has a timeout instead to figure out if the file is missing. If that timeout is raised, it slows down the upload of all modules that aren't on the hard disk for every user so it's a tradeoff.
I had (perhaps wrongly) assumed that a computer from the last 10 years might be able to retrieve a file from the hard disk in under a quarter of a second given mine seem to manage it in a few thousandths of a second, but obviously that was too optimistic. Perhaps you have a virus checker enabled that's drastically slowing file accesses down?
