Hello Jeremy,

thank you for your reply

I ran a trace when i opened the windows properties dialogue two times, 
the first one got me an even second (40), the second one an odd second 
(41). I wanted the two cases in different traces but didn't succeed. 
After the time it took me to start a second trace i always got 40. It 
seems that the alternating 40/41 seconds occur only when requesting the 
file properties again after relatively short time.

You can download the trace here: 
I also provided a client logfile (loglevel 4) with the same sequence, 
but from a later time: https://proximus.sepag.de/log.peleus.gz

Mit freundlichem Gruß
