Is there any way to get rid of the beach ball (and a hang lasting a couple of minutes sometimes), when a network user tries to open a document (in a network home folder, or AFP share) in applications with Versions support (e.g. TextEdit, Pixelmator…)?

We have a simple network setup: Mac mini server with Lion Server 10.7 (and all the recent updates) and various iMacs all running Lion (with all the recent updates as well). Server is correctly configured and running DNS, OD master, AFP, Web server (+ FTP, MySQL and stuff). Nothing gets exposed to the outside world, the server sits behind an Airport Extreme, which provides DHCP, NAT and Firewall. All users have their home folders on the server, some of them were migrated from an older 10.6.8 server, some users are brand new (no difference between them when it comes to the hang…).

Fortunately most people use LibreOffice and other applications, where this problem doesn't come up, but if you occasionally open up TextEdit…

BTW, Preview works just fine…
