If you have a large number of documents in a container, the admin protocol
will get the list then do one request per item to get infos on it, it will
take some time :) Not that there was some bug fixes in the connection
management (client side) and that may address your problem (see ).
If the hanging can be reproduce, can you mail us a stack trace?
