CRTL + Left click on java methods/members/classes slow in Eclipse

In a certain, corporate installation of Eclipse on a quite fast computer CRTL+Left click on java classes, members and methods in the java editor incurred always several seconds of a locked up eclipse which coincided with moderate network traffic. When disconnecting the network the delay would magically vanish.

Pierre-Antoine Grégoire came up with the reason and the solution: Mylyn, which tries to look up SVN information on a remote network drive. The solution is to map Mylyn hyperlinking to an unused key combination:

Window->Editors->Text Editors->Hyperlinking

Task URLs (Textual Editors)
Tasks (Textual Editors)
