Yes, my local tree contains the patch. But my first impression was
incorrect, the delay is _not_ new. The test with ie6 where done with a
wine-200410xx setup, and "save as" shows the delay too. But also other
programs run against recent CVS wine show that initial delay until the file
selection box starts up. Do other notice that delay too? E.g. the file ->
open box from wordview97 takes several seconds on an Athlon2500. (about 500
file/directories including dot files/directory in $HOME where the file open
box starts up).
