Plug-ins are only loaded (started and queried) if they are not cached
from the last startup. Checking the plug-in executables should not
take longer than a few seconds except on the first start.
Loading the Script-Fu extension takes a considerable amount of time
but it should be definitely less than a minute.

Your command-line doesn't keep extensions from being started, you only
disable loading of data (which will be loaded anyway later) and fonts
(text tool won't work).
