can't split a vectorial layer : file dialogue freezes the app

I have a crash problem. I add a vector layer (45 megs SHP) and then I click on Vecteur > Gestion de données > Séparer une couche vectorielle ; then i click to select a folder, and when I'm done selecting, qgis freezes. Note that the computation hasn't begun and I can't make it start at all. I tried with a different window manager and it's the same. I tried because the freeze also makes the wm use a lot of CPU (40 %, sometimes less).
That's while using QGIS 1.8.0 deb package (sources.list « deb http://qgis.org/debian precise main »). The distro has Qt 4.8.1 ; the package was compiled for Qt 4.8.1.
xtrace on qgis doesn't show anything while the wm is made busy by qgis (why ?). I tried gdb, but I'd need more knowledge to figure out the threads & event queues... the backtraces didn't look obvious to me.
