I think quite a lot of speed improvements have gone into nautilus CVS HEAD
over the past couple of weeks, mainly from suggestions by Alan Cox as to
what the possible performance issues were. So it might be worth trying to
see if you can get your hands on as new a version of nautilus as you can,
including it's dependancies, especially gnome-vfs and bonoboui. As to whether
Ximian pkgs are uptodate is another matter :)

but I have no clue what is wrong, sorry.
