Why is Unity Reimporting assets when changing folder location within the project view?

    This is driving me round the bend!

    I am working with Unity 4.6 on a Mac.
    When I try to move folders within the project view which contain a lot of assets such as textures etc, Unity decides to hang/crash and then when I reopen unity it starts to import all the assets in the folder I tried to move.
    This has happened to me many times, and import times are very long.

    Does Unity really reimport all the assets each time I move them in the project view?!
