Hi Andreas,
there is a bugzilla report for slow saving, but its marked as 
Resolved, because Tuviah could not verify the bug, although it still 
exists for me (and now possibly you too).

In our setup, the server is a Unix system using Samba (not a true 
Windows server). What sort of server are you using?
