Exclamation Wacky exr channel-read-order (or something) in Nuke

Hi I'm wondering if anyone know how nuke reads exr-files, specifically multichannel exrs.
I've just conclude this semilarge project and while comping it all together i discovered that exr were quite slow to read certain files, namely those with many channels/channellayers.

I'm working on a rather high end Mac so it shouldn't really be a problem, and when i rendered out my sequences to tifs the problem didn't occur so its definitively something to do with the exr (I also noticed that the more channels, the slower the read). In the end i was forced to render out all of the sequences in tifs. Which was kindofa downer.

It seems to me that nuke cycles through each channel until it encounters the one that has the outgoing connection, but that totally defeats the idea with multiple channels, and i cant really believe that that's how its supposed to work.

Anyone knows exactly how nuke reads multichannel exrs? Any one else encountered this problem?

Edit: And I probably should have posted this in General software and hardware help, sorry guys.
