So I have the same issue and think it must have something to do with the connection to the store. On my MacPro it works just fine. But on my MacBook Pro I get the spinning ball of death after only a few seconds. I have found that if I disconnect from the network and open iTunes I can operate everything and get no spinning beach ball. Don't know if that helps anyone, but that is what I have found so far. It seems to get stuck on the "waiting for apple to deliver your Genius results."

I don't have an answer, but in the same boat. Beach Balls and Beach Balls and more Beach Balls.
iTunes 11 seems to be bigger, fatter and communicating more with the big Apple in the Cloud.
A god awful mess.
Maps and now iTunes. Apple is batting a 100%
