[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.
