    This problem has been pissing me off for a while now, and it started with 10.3.9.

    Any program I use now, when I go to Open... or Save as..., the app beach balls and I wait, 10 seconds to as long as 30 second for the dialog box to open.

    Why is it doing this??? I have no network volumes mounted so I cannot see any reason for long pauses. :confused:

    Anyone else with this problem?

    Have you got any NFS mounts open? I found that with these up the connections would go to sleep, and so when an app wanted to access the discing they'd have to re-establish the connection.

    Also the iDisk on your desktop seems to slow it up a bit for me too.

    No, no network volumes mounted at all. Only an USB 2 drive, but even on machines without that drive, there's the pause.

    I hope this isn't some lame "repair permissions" problem :rolleyes:
