Gnome/X window open delay question

I use my laptop (Dell XPS 1710, running F8) at different sites, hooking
in to various networks.  So, for example:
1.  I'll boot my laptop at home and connect to my wireless network
    there, then hibernate when I pack up to head to a client site.
2.  I'll resume at a client site, bring up (for example) a wireless
    connection, and resume working.

When I open an app like gedit, if I'm on the network where I booted the
system then the window opens right away, but if I'm using another
network the window opens but takes about 25 to 30 seconds.  DISPLAY is
set to ":0.0."  

It sounds like a timeout issue.  Can anyone shed some light on how to
track this down?
