When I upgraded my machine from windows 98 to windows 2000 I had a
similar problem. Machines with a 'new' installation of windows 2000 did
not have this delay. Also, when I log in to a machine (roaming profile)
with a 'new' win2k installation, it has this delay. A roaming profile
created on a machine with a 'new' installation, however, has no delay,
even not on my upgraded machine. Seems to me it is something in my
HKEY_CURRENT_USER registry settings, inherited from windows 98.
