TemplateGenerator.pm.  The system loads up every single active
DynamicField, loads it's Key and Viewable Value and creates a large hash
that it then cycles through and attempts to do a string replace.  This is
especially painful since we didn't even use any DynamicFields in our
response templates.

Therefore I patched ours to find out which fields are needed and only load
those.  It resolved our performance issue while maintaining the

Providing the patch here, in case you want to include it in a future
