This problem is solved after my isp fixed some very slow dns servers that w=
ere even slower in conjuction with a "dns relay"on my router. Looks like th=
e finder was waiting for that every time. Its running smoothly now as it us=
ed to be.

If the finder stats all of them then yes, this behaviour seems normal.
There are a couple of gigs in that tree.
However, I did use the client before and in my memory it wasnt as
slow as it is now.
I tried to make a symlink from my local Documents folder directly to
my afs homedir but Finder doesnt like that either..again very slow,
now even when opening the Documents folder.
