Problem's still there in 0.99.4 (final).

I downgraded to 0.99.3 and the problem's not there (startup time is 4-5 seconds instead of 30+).
If I get around to building a Unix version I'll troubleshoot further 
[wouldn't know where to begin on Windoze], but it's unlikely I'll have time.

Sorry Jeff, you're right.
I was trying the latest build found on
http://www.wireshark.org/download/automated/win32/ (SVN-19748) and actually
that version is quicker that 0.99.4pre2 (it takes 3 or 4 seconds to start
up, while the prerelease takes at least -on my laptop- 15 seconds).
