Not sofar. I've not come across that sort of behaviour, though I have to say 
that I don't use that plugin a whole lot.

At one stage, I forget exactly when, the ABI was changed in a manner which 
could cause the plugin to search in a manner other than what the user 
specified. IIRC that was fixable by deleting the cache file in 
~/.config/emelfm2. But I doubt that's what you're describing.

Is it possible that some unexpected match-condition is still in play, leftover 
from some previous search ?

Nothing of significance has changed in the plugin code, for about 8 months.

Perhaps some more clues from you will assist:

 * exactly what were you looking for, and what did you expect to find ?
 * in broad terms at least, what was the extent of the directory tree that took 
so long to process ?
 * in which 0.3.x version did you last have success with the plugin ?
