Huge gvim annoyance

Since upgrading to Ubuntu 11.01, when I open a document using gvim, I get a very unresponsive file browser window. In the past, I would double click a folder and it would quickly open. Using gvim, when I double-click, I get a wait cursor. I often have to click four or five times before the folder opens. Very irritating. Anyone else have this problem?

Same thing happens whether using vim-gnome or vim-gtk package.

Other programs do not share this quirk. For example, the text editor program behaves as expected when opening the files.
