Can you take a look at this report?
It seems to be a performance problem in idlwave.

Enter your bug report here.

After starting and using idlwave module emacs becomes extremely slow
and unresponsive during the message:

Loading and normalizing library catalogs in idle time...done

This is to be expected when you have a large (IDL) search path, or (especially) one which includes slow network shares. During this message, IDLWAVE is searching the path for `.idlwave_catalog' files, and loading them. Try setting `idlwave-use-library-catalogs' to nil to see if the problem goes away. If so, it probably relates to the size of the search path (held in `idlwave-path-alist', which is gathered from the IDL shell, or explicitly set in `idlwave-library- path'), or to a slow network share. Another option would be to explicitly set idlwave-library-path to a smaller file tree.

This behaviour appeared with Version 1.3

I'm not aware of any recent changes in behavior for library catalogs.
