I assume you mean compacting? The last change was in build 2663. As can be found on https://whatsnew.idimager.com

Build 2663; In the Single User edition, compacting the database will also do a rebuild of the indexes

That unfortunately does cost time, but has proven to be a necessity.

Hmmm, that's a good remark and food for thought.
Currently, as it is, the answer is yes.

BTW; I did some tests and reindexing adds about 15% to the total compacting time. That is not even close to the 100% "longer" that you mentioned. Maybe you can re-verify your timings

Also make sure that you exclude the catalog folder for any possible virus scanner that you have installed (even the one that may come with your operating system).

I added the contents of the catalogue folder into Norton. Started compression at 9.47am and it finished at 10.45am. The size was 7.75Gb cpu usage was around 18% , memory usage was around 160MB and disk between 7 and 25MB/s. The time taken before was well under 20 m. If the index rebuilding is remaining permanently could there be an option to close the program and PC down after finishing and it could be set running unattended.

The basic spec is Physical Memory: 16304 MB
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4900MQ CPU @ 2.80GHz
Processor Speed: 2794 MHz
1 SSD HD 500Mb
1 SSD HD 1Tb
