[Bug-XBoard] Extremely slow startup

Hey guys,

This bug is a bit harder to define. All I know is, the latest version of Xboard from the Ubuntu repository (4.4.2-1) starts up just about instantly, takes maybe half a second. The latest xboard from master on git, however, takes a good 10 seconds on average, during which time the CPU load spikes to 100% and slows down the entire machine. After those 10 seconds it suddenly snaps back to reality and performs perfectly. However, this extremely laggy and intrusive startup is bothering me.

Here are the things I've tried:
 - Compiling with and without Xaw3d. No difference.
 - Running with and without my custom xpms. No difference.
 - Running in and out of engine mode. No difference.

The only thing that seems to make a difference is to go back to the binary shipped with Ubuntu; but I'd prefer to stay with the latest version and help with testing, etc. I've attached my .xboardrc but it looks normal to me; the only change I made is the pixmapsDirectory, but it still happens if I get rid of that too.

Thanks, guys!
