Positive.  Create a shortcut to a remote device in the path and then 
disconnect the remote device.  It gets stuck trying to stat this.  Same 
for any other broken short cuts.  Additionally, it seems dependent on 
the depth and the number of files/directories it has to parse.  There is 
at least one bug report.  QTBug-6039
