FWIW, in my case, org seems to open org files that are necessary to
identify the capture target, like when refiling somewhere else. Using
`C-c C-c', org does not open other files though, just the targetted one.

Cleaning up your org agenda files, if possible, might reduce the number
of files org needs to load.
