Thanks for the report. Do you have compressed info files in your system? If yes, this bug seems to be a duplicate of bug #41055.

when clicking on any of the on disk help via Help / Documentation, the gui freezes for 15-30s.

this was also reported in ubuntu as #1314844, and i hit the same bug with debian sid and 3.8.2-2 (octave-info and octave-html both installed).
