It is probably trying to map your hostname to an IP address. The simplest way to fix this is to make sure your hostname is listed in the /etc/hosts file. This will allow forward and reverse lookups of your hostname to occur without any network traffic and should prevent these slowdowns.

If you are using a dialup script that changes your hostname when you dial up, that may also be causing the problem. (eg. dial up to internet -> hostname changes to one in the domain of the ISP. Drop connection and hostname continues to be in ISP's domain. Now when you do a name lookup, it needs to contact the ISP's DNS server which times out). If this is the case, try turning off the "change hostname" setting.
