At work, I would like to use KDE's
dolphin as a file manager. However, our home directories reside on an AFS share . When starting dolphin, it becomes unresponsive for dozens of minutes.
stracing it reveals that it tries to open all the nodes in our AFS tree:
openat(AT_FDCWD, "/afs/somewhereElse.tld", O_RDONLY|O_NONBLOCK|O_DIRECTORY|O_CLOEXEC
I need to stop dolphin from doing that; this behaviour makes the program completely unusable on AFS trees. Is there some setting that controls this?
 If you have never worked with AFS before, for the sake of this question, assume that there is a root directory that has subtrees from different universities, research institutes etc. mounted below it. The data in those subtrees really reside at the remote sites, so access is slow and resource-intensive.
