Odd IDEA Problem

Since last week, my IDEA installation has been acting strangely. As far
as I know, there is nothing different about it.

Build 1183
Windows 2000

Now I presume that it's possible our computer support people may have
added something to the system or changed something - I have no way of
knowing.

The problem:

When I execute certain IDEA commands, such as saving a file or CVS
operations, the CPU pegs for 10-30 seconds with nothing happening and
then the operation completes.

I experienced the following problem regarding CVS commands:

cvsnt running on windows xp, IDEA running on WinXP connecting with :pserver.
In the network there is a Windows 2000 server providing
the internet connection. This server lost its internet
connection -> this caused all CVS operations to be
extremely slow - not only from IDEA, but also from console.

Also, I know from former times, that IDEA always performs
some scans (Filewatcher?!) on ALL network drives...
This can also slow things down if you have mounted some
slow / nonreachable network drives.

Bye,

just to make sure about that, note that the CVS commands get slow due to server having lost its internet connection, ALTHOUGH the CVS repository is in the LOCAL network

Well, we have a permanent T1, so that's unlikely to be the cause. To be
specific though, I'm using ext + plink+pagent with RSA authentication.

Is this correct? Even if no directories from the network drives
are part of any of the source or classpaths?

about the server losing its internet connection (nonoptimal: server accesses WLAN access point...):
I wanted to point out that some seemingly unrelated problem in the Windows network can severly impact CVS performance
