And no visible change in PF usage or CPU usage when I start Emacs 23. No
noticeable change in CPU usage as Emacs starts up - stays ~0% to 5%. PF usage
remains ~922 MB throughout startup. No difference noticeable in Task Mgr whether
Emacs 23 happens to start in 1 sec or 15 sec.

The elapsed time (e.g. 15 sec) occurs before the frame starts to appear. The
frame is displayed, and startup finishes, at the normal speed. It seems almost
as if Emacs waits before it decides to start up.

I suppose it could be something particular to my machine, but I don't see such a
wait/delay for any other apps or other Emacs versions (20, 21, 22.x).
