Often when I am running Matlab, it freezes for a couple of minutes.  I
can't enter commands and the various Matlab windows (figures, desktop,
etc) either go blank or contain 'screenshots' of whatever is on my
Windows desktop.  After several minutes, Matlab refreshes its windows
and I can enter commands again.  This occurs when I am doing simple
tasks such as making a line plot or editing an mfile.  I am running
R2010a on Windows XP; we have a slow internet connection but I have
several drives mounted on my Matlab path.  Any idea why Matlab is
freezing?
