Looked at strace: gedit is stuck in `lstat("/mnt/disk",...)` where
/mnt/disk is a NFS share mounted via autofs, the NFS server is on the
LAN.

Activating the VPN suddenly cut the communication with the LAN... and
the NFS server!

As soon as I've disabled the autofs service and unmounted `/mnt/disk`
(with -f to force), gedit window suddenly appeared!

So the problem is identified: when starting, `gedit` lists some mount
points and it can stay stuck.

Would that be possible not to list mount points or at leat do it in a
thread so that it doesn't stay stuck without obvious reason? thanks.

(please don't mark as solved as there still a problem with gedit
stat'ing mount points in an unsafe way)
