Hi Eric (and list),

```
I'm bringing this discussion back to the mailing list so we can share this new information and search for a solution.
```
```
To bring the list up to speed, Eric is experiencing the same stutter on his machine that I experience. I asked if his machine was part of an active directory domain (which is the only thing I could think that was common between the two computers on which I experience this problem).
```
```
As you can see, his answer is yes, which is great because now we have something else to discuss.
```
```
What kind of experiments can we run to figure out what Emacs is trying to do?
```
```
Also, I wondered if perhaps this behavior was related to "tramp" since 22.3 doesn't have tramp and also doesn't stutter (for Eric or myself).
```
Any insight will be greatly appreciated!
