I always experience the delay when working at a different site than where I
booted up. If, say, I started up my system at home, then when I return home
it'll work like a charm again and when I'm at another location the windows
will open but with a delay. The network connections work just fine--no delays
at any location.
I'm just looking for suggestions on what to dig into.
