I'm running Linux Mint Maya 13.2 on a laptop from a USB stick, and SSHing onto that install from my own work computer.
When i'm editing a file with Vim, i keep getting a pause of about a minute where it becomes completely unresponsive. The cursor is blinking but i can't do anything. After a minute or two it comes back to normal, spontaneously.
This is not caused by me hitting Ctrl&S, eg like this question: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3419820/sometimes-my-file-just-freezes-in-my-vi-vim-what-happened
When it happens, i'm often using the cursors to navigate around the file.
I never see this pause at any other time when i'm ssh'd onto the other computer in this way: it only happens when i'm editing a file with vim. The version of Vim i'm using is
VIM - Vi IMproved version 7.3.429
Grateful for any suggestions! max
