Yes, it usually takes about 5 to 10 minutes for me and I have 850 songs...
It runs so quickly because I think it stops when it realizes there is no
perl, or an outdated version

Do not use those Perl files, delete them, then try it again. If it still
doesn't work you either don't have Perl installed on your computer, or do
not have an effective version. To get one use the link provided in the
TagDatabase Wiki page. Or, you could try doing it the Java way. It is all
explained in the Wiki page, I suggest you check it out.
