Maybe it is different on the first run?

Hmm, anyway, I found out that with

 (setq package-archives
     '(("gnu" . "http://elpa.gnu.org/packages/";)
      ("melpa" . "http://melpa.milkbox.net/packages/";)))

in my init file I see the issue.  But with

  (setq package-archives
        '(("gnu" . "http://elpa.gnu.org/packages/";)
          ("melpa" . "http://melpa.milkbox.net/packages/";)))

it seems to be fixed (i.e. the same expressions just transposed).  With
other words, `package-archives' seemingly needs to be set before calling
`package-intialize' (@SK Kim, do you see the same?).

With the first version, after Emacs startup, `package-archive-contents'
only includes the "gnu" packages.  With the second version, it seems to
include "everything" (the list is too long to be printed in reasonable
time).  That variable is used to decide what packages are new.  That's
were the problem seems to come from.

I think the behavior is at least "surprising", a pitfall.
