File > Open, Dialog ridiculously slow to appear (e.g. due to non-existent floppy drive being active in BIOS, card readers, network drives, slow connections)
Submitted by James Ford
I can double click a file in explorer and it opens in gimp immediately.
If i forget to do this and instead, to my great lament, try to do File > Open i get a 30 sec pause before the dialog appears. And its not any faster the second time either. How can it possibly be that slow, its like i'm launching a whole new application responsible just for the file open dialog....
