How to reproduce? Browse around the pre-made space maps?

This is pretty annoying, so it would be nice if someone could give me some idea of what's going on. Thanks!
This sounds like it could be an issue with on-demand patching. Make sure your network adapter drivers are up-to-date. It's possible that your modem and/or router are being overwhelmed by the game's connections; it's a sadly common problem with older hardware.

If it is being caused by the above, you can disable on-demand patching in the launcher (click the Options link at the top). It will likely mean a HUGE download with your next patch to the game, but then you won't have to patch on demand. Hope this helps.
