eh?  ido-mode should be included.

Please type

M-x lisp-interaction-mode RET
(locate-library "ido")

Followed by C-j

You should see a path. What is it?

OK, it is definitely something that happens in Aquamacs.

One thing that may be causing this is smart frame positioning, which  
has been improved since 1.3.
Please execute

(remove-hook 'minibuffer-setup-hook 'smart-move-minibuffer-inside- 

(type C-x C-e after entering the above).
Then try again.  Faster now?

The other thing may be related to the tool bar, which has improved  
greatly.  Try turning it off before entering C-x C-f.  Does this make  
a difference?
