Under 2.18.18 some projects are extremely slow loading, that was not the case under 2.18.17.

So far it looks like the issue might be related to the availability of network resources. However a project which had the issue of network unavailability (SMB) also failed to load a number of local layers for unknown reason.
It would seem for the network the speed at which a networked resource is evaluated for being available or not, could be much slower than for a local resource.
I need to do some more testting to try to nail down exactly what is happening since it is far from clear ATM.
