User is on a WinXP machine w/latest patches for O/S and client. Servers are NW51sp7 and NW65SP3. All is well.

Randomly, with no known change in environment, hardware, software, anything of that sort, user experiences the following: When using an app such as MS Word or other office app, user selects FILE | SAVE (or FILE | OPEN, sth. like that), and experiences an unreasonably long delay (as much as 15 seconds) before Save dialog box displays drives / directories. If user is in as workstation only, displaying only local drives, there appears to be no issue (this is almost never the case, of course).

This has just happened to the person who approves our yearly NetWare/BM/GW/ZEN license renewals <grin>. Any thoughts?
