Yes, I have three NFS drives in the Places section. These drives are not 
mounted by default, but get auto-mounted when I select them. This happens 
through the autofs service.

At the moment I cannot reach those NFS drives, since I am in a different LAN. 
So apparently the lag I experience depends on KDialog looking for those NFS 
locations, and not being able to connect. 

I didn't thought it would have been a problem. In Dolphin I don't have any 
issue, although I have the same drives shown in Places. I have a lag only if I 
select any of those drives, otherwise everything works fine.

In any case, now I have simply hidden (not deleted, just hidden) those NFS 
folders from Dophin's Places, and now KDialog opens immediately again.

No, no message is displayed.

Thanks again,
