I'm having the same problem on a windows xp sp 3 and I can confirm:
1/ Ctrl-g does not interrupt the pause
2/ Having a network connection corrects the problem

For me the pause only happens when I want to edit the buffer. If I
just move the cursor around, there is no pause. Continued editing does
not pause but if I wait a couple of minutes, I get a pause again.

As for point 2, I get the impression that any network connection
solves the problem but I'm having trouble confirming this because my
wifi cxn is very intermittent.
