Re: performance issue concerning externals

I'm no pro, so I don't know how the correct debug approach would be for this
case.
I did a strace on the proccess and saw that it started hanging when waiting
for input from the stream.
Here's the corresponding part of the strace output:

socket(PF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, IPPROTO_IP) = 4
connect(4, {sa_family=AF_INET, sin_port=htons(10023), sin_addr=inet_addr("
78.46.66.102")}, 16) = 0
read(4, "( success ( 1 2 ( ANONYMOUS ) ( "..., 4096) = 76
write(4, "( 2 ( edit-pipeline svndiff1 abs"..., 100) = 100
read(4, "( success ( ( CRAM-MD5 ) 14:as3s"..., 4096) = 47
write(4, "( CRAM-MD5 ( ) ) ", 17) = 17
read(4,

Then nothing would happen for a while.
After the usual 5 - 8 minutes, it continued.
