The 'Freeze' is when it calculates the optimum width of each column. If there are a large number of rows then this can take a long time. (The spreadsheet used in 13.0 is far more complex/functional and that makes the width calculation much slower)
Generally a thousand or 2 rows will not take too long, but 50 thousand could take 30 sec on a slower system.
Improvements have been made in some of the efixes, so I would suggest upgrading to the latest version (188.8.131.52) and checking that out.
You will also find that 13.10 (latest efix is 184.108.40.206) is considerably faster at data retreival - especially if you use Teradata.Net instead of ODBC.
For example, SQLA 7.2 (or 12.0) takes 74 seconds to return 40,000 rows from dbc.columns on my system.
SQLA 220.127.116.11 takes only 7 seconds if I connect using Teradata.Net.
