bug#11849: AW: bug#11849: 23.3; emacs freeze when vpn is connected

I updated emacs and had a look at the process explorer. Neither cpu traffic nor 
network traffic is high.  The network shows a connection to the emacs server

>From this  I realized, that my error description was too imprecise:

What I actually do:

* start emacs normally
* try to open a file in windows via context-menu
* this calls the following (from the windows registry):
@="Edit &with Emacs"

@="\"C:\\bin\\emacs-24.1\\bin\\emacsclientw.exe\" -a 
\"C:\\bin\\emacs-24.1\\bin\\runemacs.exe\" \"%1\""

* I am guessing, that this will try to connect to the emacs server
* No answer from emacs for about 1 minute
* The file is finally opened in emacs

Any suggestions?

First, could you please try the latest Emacs 24.1?  A precompiled binary is 
available from ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/emacs/windows/.

If the problem persists in Emacs 24.1, I would suggest to look with the Task 
Manager or (better) Process Explorer whether some process uses up a lot of CPU 
during those freezes.  If the CPU usage is low, then perhaps Emacs tries to 
access some resources via the network?
Another idea is to customize vc-handled-backends to nil and see if that helps.  
Finally, try setting w32-get-true-file-attributes to nil.
