My goal with activating vfs_fruit was to speed up directory listings for Mac clients, which works. Can the accompanying slowdown for Windows clients be avoided?

yeah, I guess so, but somebody has to dig through the relevant codepaths for a few days to implement the optimisations.

thinking about it, most codepaths already do avoid special processing if not in AAPL mode or when not operating on a stream.

There's one exception however: fetching the file creation date from Netatalk metadata when in "fruit:metadata = netatalk" mode which is the default.

"fruit:metadata = stream" would get rid of this. Check your setup carefully to decide which mode you need.
