[Kst] KIO storm

The vector dialog and data wizard are creating a KIO storm in CVS-HEAD, which
is a major bug. Here's what I mean:
In the file input field, type "smb:/" and fill in a workgroup and path. You
will see in debug output that it is spawning a new KIO job for each character
that is typed.
Due to a bug in the data wizard, you don't see the problem there, but it's
very clear from the vector dialog. Any suggestions on how to fix this?
Different approaches might include:
1) a timer to only check the contents every X seconds
2) a button only for non-local URLs that has to be clicked in order to check
if the file is valid (network "stat" basically)
This is rather major for 1.1.0.
