Since tab completion is a function of bash, it is odd that tab completion
should affect Konsole. My guess is maybe this has to do with the tty bell. Do
you see the same behavior with 'printf "\a"' in a fresh shell that hasn't had
this delay yet? (And if so, does that "substitute for" the delay in tab
completion, i.e. if you do 'printf "\a"', that is slow but first tab completion
is fast?)

I tried the above, and with sycoca out of date, the bell caused a sycoca
rebuild, which very much resembles your stated symptoms. You might want to try
running konsole from within itself (or another terminal) and see if there are
any messages printed when the 'hang' occurs.
