My findings on that is that the pager thread needs to compile display
list in the main loop, and this process is framerate dependent. At that
time of the initialisation, there is only the splashscreen on screen,
but its refresh rate slow down the loading process. For instance, I
mesured it takes more than 1000 frames to display to correctly load a
terrain tile. Maybe there are parameters to tweak, like the number of
maximum display lists to compile each frames, and we could use more
aggressive values until the scenery is displayed. Just a thought.

The return to 0.1 as the near plane would save us a lot of complain.
