Gdb - stepped through my code and when it got to stepping over the
gtk_file_chooser_dialog_new call it didn't return for a long time.

Yep, this was it. I disabled the floppy drive in the BIOS as the poster
there said he did, and the problem went away - now the file chooser dialogs
open immediately. Also the first two paragraphs there almost exactly mirror
the OS and hardware upgrades that I've done on my PC, including switching to
SSDs, if that might be relevant.
