You've disabled file locking, but Emacs still checks whether some
other Emacs session locked the file.  It does that as part of
restore-buffer-modified-p, which is called by JIT font-lock (because
fontification makes the buffer modified and JIT font-lock needs to
undo that after it fontifies a chunk of buffer).  Checking whether a
file is locked entails calling unlock_file, which in turn calls
read_lock_data, which tries to open the lock file.  I'm guessing that
this is slow on that remote volume of yours.

Maybe we should support a special value of create-lockfiles which
would mean don't create lockfiles and don't test fro lockfiles created
by other Emacs sessions.
