After updating to Wallet 0.7.6 (Beta 20), running mist start syncing mainnet from the beginning, which is very bad, because syncing ~1,7MBlocks took me 4 days last time ...

Is that due to the "vulnerability release" ? Can I speed up the sync (... no, 'geth --fast' doesn't help).

It also give me ntp server errors which I didn't get with Wallet 0.7.5, here it is a log snippet:

The problem occurs using Geth Version: 1.5.0-unstable with mist Wallet 0.7.6 (Beta 20) “vulnerability release”.

With Geth Version: 1.4.8-stable and Wallet 0.7.6 syncing blockchain is "A LOT" faster:

syncing ~1,7MBlocks took 1.45 h instead of 4 days!

That seems due to the current develop branch, which will break backwards compatibility with 1.4.8 and earlier (see also https://github.com/ethereum/mist/issues/891#event-704742747)
