Hmm, I vaguely remember a similar sounding behaviour at one point. I  
think it was when using an XO-1 and having a very large file I was tab  
completing (say like a ~340Mb .img with a difficult to type name). It  
took ages (minutes) for it to tab complete, but would complete if you  
waited. Was a long time ago so my memory may be playing tricks, I  
can't remember where the file was (USB stick or on internal NAND), but  
it's possible I was trying to make a bootable USB stick having  
downloaded an .img to the XO NAND.
