Bug report #9594
Save output shapefile dialogue is slow to load filenames

When browsing to save the output shapefile of a tool, the browse dialogue box consistently takes several tens of seconds to populate the filenames, and is unresponsive during this time. The filenames are local, not network.

More info, narrowing the problem and considerably reducing the impact:
A network drive was mapped but no longer available. Removing the drive mapping cured the problem.
When the 'Save output shapefile' dialogue box opens it may be trying to update that drive first even though only the local files are needing to be displayed.
