Perhaps it does for me? I know that there have been some issues with the network here as of late, but I haven't seen any strangeness in any other app so far. (Except for perhaps an occasional slowdowns/hickups, but not frequently.)

Would it be possible to try to change so that the DNS-resolving, connecting and authenticating happens after the text is shown? I think it sort of would make more sense to show the text first anyway.

Ok. What I'm seeing here does not feel very intentional. But it would not be the first time there's a bug in a windows control on the other hand...


I'll merge the apply patch progress comments below, since they both seem somewhat related. Dialog drawing delays in TortoiseSVN on my system.

Strange indeed. When I tried to reproduce it one more time this morning, it didn't go as far as "(Not responding)", and after a short while of "emptiness" the dialog caught on and actually showed some progress. The delay was still there, but much shorter.
When I tried it again the delay was longer, but I still managed to catch a glimpse of progress before the dialog closed, as opposed to yesterday where I couldn't see any progress at all.

Are we doing anything at all here that is specific to TortoiseSVN that potentially could introduce these kinds of delays?
