On a friend's laptop, selecting Game / Save Game As... in the client consistently causes the client to wedge for ages (minutes IIRC), not responding (greyed out by the desktop environment). The dialog does eventually appear.

This was observed most recently yesterday with RC1-equivalent S2_5 code (on Ubuntu 14.10, I think), but has been observed with older code too.

I should gather more info, such as how many files exist in ~/.freeciv/saves. (It works fine on my machine, with currently 2209 files.)

(This is a dialog we draw ourselves, not a standard file chooser.)
