I thought we had fixed this slowness.  I often access files over the
network and have not bumped into this slowness, so I'm pretty sure it
can be avoided without turning off the feature.  Especially since the
"walk up the dir" is not done only for dir-settings but also for
VC backends, so it's pretty heavily used (meaning not that it's
important, but that we should have seen this slowness more often if it
was "normal").

Can we go back to trying to actually fix the slowness rather than
workaround it?
