Re: [h-e-w] checkpoint endpoint connect and port 7778

Hi Eli,

setting this variable makes tab completing directory contents work like a charm 

To me it seems most surprising that the faulty behaviour manifests itself only 
when the vpn software has established a tunnel.

Entering w32-get-true-file-attributes on google also turned up [1], which goes 
into a bit of detail and also has another option available should the first one 
not work.

Thank you very much!

Does it help to set the value of w32-get-true-file-attributes to nil?

If not, then perhaps you could use some utility that traces system
calls, and see which one of them is stalling.
