Wow, I see it in the mailing list. It looks like a pretty old issue but
I'll give it a try tomorrow. However, I recreated the repository of
proj2 and the new repository works fine now. Old repository is still
doing those nasty lags (hang ups). I'm little pesimistic about the
suggested solution but
anyway I'm going to try it. So for now, thanks for the suggestion.
