Which version of XEmacs?  Up until very recently, things could be very
slow because of a bug in our process code which caused a hang on large
network operations.  If that sounds like a possibility, I'll find the
patch.  (I think it was by Daiki Ueno, it simply set the pipe to
non-blocking.)  I don't think this code was ever part of GNU Emacs,
but there's some possibility of independent invention.  ;-)
