Long pause when opening certain folders.

Description of problem:
Certain folders take a long time opening, with the 'click here to cancel' dialog appearing. It doesn't seem to matter what's in the folder, infact it once happened with an empty folder. Once the folder has been opened, I can go back into it instantly.
The folders are all on the hard-drive, no networking is involved. cd'ing into the folder in a terminal works perfectly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. From the desktop, double click on my home folder.
2. Opening any of the folders here will sometimes cause the pause.
Actual Results: Nothing for about 10 seconds, when a dialog appears giving me the option to cancel opening the folder. About 10 or 15 seconds after that the folder opens normally.
Expected Results: The folder should open a lot quicker.
I have never seen this behaviour on any of my older machines, which are all i386. This only seems to happen on my x86_64 box. It's not a big problem, but a tad annoying.
I've since upgraded to FC5 and this problem is gone.
