OOo File open dialogue is very slow on a Samba share with lots of files.

Basically this is a followup to Ticket #120. While the reason for Ticket #120 was the missing cache of our Samba Client, the reason for this ticket is, that the ammount of time OOo File Open Dialog needs to read a directory rises exponentially (for n directory entries it has to do n * n reads).
It appears that this is a problem of the OOo Filedialog and not of Samba as my tests on a directory with 4700 entries revealed:
- OOo 3.2.0 needs ages (never let the operation complete, killed it after 20 minutes), as it blocks the machine.
- OOo 1.1.5 which used the Odin-Filedialog does the same within 1-3 seconds.
- StarOffice 5.1a (which has a similar Filedialog as OOo 3.x) needs approximately 12 minutes (and does not block the machine).
