We've optimized this a fair amount, so the answer is
unfortunately "a little here, a little there".
I wonder, tho, if something is not working right on your dual
processor machine, since my my 1700 Mhz single processor laptop
w/ slower disk (running Ubuntu) manages initial startup time of
about 8 seconds and about 3-4 seconds on subsequent startups.
Are you using the system GTK or Wing's private GTK? Also,
changing themes may be worth trying as some of them add
substantial overhead w/ pixmap manipulations.
