Regression when accessing non-Office files via shared folder

The `Version' of this bug is against 3.1.0 Beta 3 r55271 - the tracker doesn't have this version in its pull-down.
While there's a positive improvement when accessing Office files via a shared folder, there's a negative impact on non-Office files. I use Sybase's PowerDesigner (PD). The files are accessible via a shared folder. With 3.0.12 and before, there wasn't much of a delay when opening the files. Unfortunately, I don't have timings however I can downgrade to 3.0.12 if necessary and collect metrics.
With Beta 3, the folder icon doesn't show any activity for 16 seconds after double-clicking on the PD file. Once activity starts, there is a flutter before the icon goes solid with activity. This second step takes an additional four seconds. Adding all the fractions, it takes roughly 21 seconds to open the file.
What's strange is accessing a large-ish text file is nearly instantaneous.
I checked lmhosts' and hosts' and cleaned up previous hacks to `vboxsrv' - e.g. aliasing it to 127.0.0.1
Please let me know what additional metrics are necessary.
