DO11: Network button causes DO startup delay

DO 11.10 64-bit, Windows 7 64-bit

The button below causes DO 11 to wait 5-10 s before opening each new lister, if the host pointed to is down. In DO 10 there was no such delay.
An identical button pointing to always-on server does not cause such problems.

<button backcol="none" display="label" textcol="none"> <label>admin</label> <tip>Go to admin</tip> <icon1>C:\Windows\system32\imageres.dll,-143</icon1> <function type="normal"> <instruction>Go &quot;\\myserver\admin&quot; USEQUALKEYS</instruction> </function> </button>

Pointing to unreachable network servers has always incurred a delay in that lister, unless Windows has already realised and cached the fact they are unreachable.

When you say it causes a delay in opening new listers, do you mean you are manually ooening another lister while the command is still processing in the original lister?

If that new lister is being affected by the original lister, it could be due to scripts you have installed which are running when new listers open or on each navigation, and are either trying to talk tonthe busy lister or being queued up behind it. Try disabling all scripts to test that theory.

Or do you mean when you hold shift and click the button to open a new lister for an unreachable server, there's a delay?


The method to open a new lister was Desktop doubleclick (my usual) - I have not tried other methods. As for scripts - I have only what's included in the default installation.
The delay is not related to other listers. I can quickly double-click a few times on Desktop, and after 5-10 s I get relevant number of listers opening regardless of whether there were already any listers opened and how long they lived.

I will try opening with shift-click.

I have played with this today, and it seems there is actually some interaction with Windows networking here. Let's leave it for now, and I will report when there is more information.
