Well, thanks, Frank and Steve for the suggestions. My problem is fixed,
altho I am not sure whether it GOT fixed while trying Frank's suggestion
- or I never really had a problem in the first place.
I understand (now, better) that Gimp caches a lot of startup info the
first time it starts, or whenever things change - I thought of that
mainly for fonts - but I guess it does it for plug-ins as well. So, as I
was testing with half my plug-ins, it started fairly slow, then a
restart with the same set was quite fast. So I tried the OTHER half -
and that was, again, fairly slow the first time, then quite fast the
second. Tried it again with all the plug-ins - same result: slow, then
fast on a restart. And fast again this morning.
But it does seem like these tests were NEVER as slow as when I tested a
few days ago. So, I insist on blaming a corrupt cache, that got cleaned
up in some of my testing! :-)
Anyway - thanks again - now I can start learning Gimp.
