How did you setup your keyboard command which causes such a delay? I
used the "Keyboard Settings" dialog from Xfce's settings manager and
configured my Print key to execute xfce4-popup-dict.
There is absolutely no recognisable delay when pressing the key, the
dict main window is popping up immediately.
