I'm trying to setup a new project with the play-heroku-seed in the typesafe activator, but sbt is extremely slow to resolve all its dependencies.  It's been several months since I ran play/sbt. Should I be using a non-default configuration for sbt to speed up these downloads?

Update: By using the command-line to 'play compile', all the packages resolved quickly.  This problem seems to be isolated to the typesafe activator ui.

You might file a bug … if they're not aware of this they will probably be interested.

You don't by chance have a proxy or something in the mix, do you? That would be my first guess at what's causing this.
