longer on Windows than Linux.  That means that a lot of the core developers
don't really notice this as much.

Actually I'm running linux and its with an optimized fs so most things load
very quickly.

starting on the into the wind runway with real-weather.  At the moment it
can't be done, since real-weather is dependent on position, and I'm trying to
introduce the counter-dependency as well.  What I think needs to happen is to
init approx location first, then init the environment, then init exact location.

Absolutely, but all that can be done after the loop starts so that we can get
