FIX: Catalog Manager may take a long time to save the changes for a product that contains many variants in Commerce Server 2007

In Microsoft Commerce Server 2007, you use Catalog Manager to manage a product that contains many variants. When you try to save changes for the product, Catalog Manager may take a long time to save the changes.
This problem occurs because Catalog Manager processes all the variants when Catalog Manager saves the changes. Catalog Manager does this regardless of whether the variants were updated.
