I noticed that on laptops with wireless connections the context menu in
explorer was very slow on a networked folder.
So i did some research on problems with context menu handlers, suspecting
that it might be caused by one of a number of programs which i had
installed. TortoiseSVN immediately sprang to mind since i know that it does
network related things. The following site lists common problems and
solutions to slow context menus.
Using a utility called shexview i disabled the context menu handler for
TortoiseSVN and ran some tests, it appeared to resolve the problem. So im
concluding that TortoiseSVN has a bug in its context menu handler in the
sense that its doing something evil when im right clicking networked
folders. Ill go out on a limb and guess that its probably a dns lookup or
I know this is a pretty general report, but the evidence is very strong, and
its easily reproducable. It also doesn't appear to be something which has
been addressed in the change logs.
