network opening in cvs emacs 21.3.50.1 awfully slower than in emacs 21.3

hi there

the current cvs emacs is on XP awfully slow when opening files via the
network. eg.
M-x find-file "//othermachine/c/file.txt"
can take 20 secs. this doesn't happen on the release emacs 21.3.

what's different? and is there a customization to fix it?

thanks, olli

the

I'm using a build from 23 Dec and edit remote files all day.
I use ange-ftp. That is, M-x find-file "//ftp:machine/fname.txt"
I've not noticed any significant difference.
Perhaps it's protocol related.
You may want to mention which one(s) exhibit this behavior.
It could also be a problem introduced after that date.
