When you delete : the string becomes a theoretically valid network path - "//" and Far tries to read the subdirectory "2" of the network share "1" of the server "" to show you the autocompletion list.
However, your local network probably doesn't have such server and Windows needs some time to realise that.

You can turn off autocompletion in Options - Command Line settings (after that it can still be invoked manually using Ctrl+Space).

Thank you!!
I thought it was connected to a network resource, but I did not know how to disable it.
It was very irritating, thank you very much :)
