The workaround mentioned works for me. For fish users: Put

eval (dircolors -c | sed 's/or=[^:]*://')

in your `~/.config/fish/`.

And you have to modify the builtin `ls` function:

cp /usr/share/fish/functions/ ~/.config/fish/functions/

Then open `~/.config/fish/functions/` and comment out this line:

set -a param --indicator-style=classify

  ls --color hangs for directories linked from network

Status in coreutils package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: coreutils

  ls --color hangs for directories linked from network resources if those 
resources are not available
  I guess it hangs in trying to validate the link ( have not tried to wait and 
see if it times out or not )

  easily reproducible.

  annoying since --color is default

  Running Ubuntu 8.0.4
  2.6.24-21-generic #1 SMP Mon Aug 25 16:57:51 UTC 2008 x86_64 GNU/Linux
  ls (GNU coreutils) 6.10


  since ls --color will try to determine if a symlink is broken or not
  (so that it will be correctly coloured), it *will* timeout on vanished


  Inhibit 'ls' from following symlinks (at least in the context of --color):
  eval `dircolors -b | sed s/or=[^:]*://`

  Add the above to your profile.
