Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

1. Start emacs with -Q
2. Open a directory or file by entering its UNC path (e.g. C-x C-f
//server/share/folder/file.txt RET).
3. Notice it is very slow to get it to open.

I reported this before Emacs 21 or 22 was released, and it was fixed
then. In the latest two pretests the problem is now back. Working with
UNC paths is now almost unusable - I have to wait several seconds to
open a file or get a file listing in Dired.

Thanks!
