It's got nothing to do with GTK, but KDE. When you open a KDE-based app
outside of KDE, it needs to run kdeinit, dcopserver, kded, and
kbuildsycoca, which takes a bit of time. Under KDE, those are already
loaded with the desktop.
For example, loading konsole on my machine (a 450MHz K6-2 w/7200 RPM
disks) takes about 8 seconds. If I have another KDE-based app already
open, it takes 3 seconds to load. Still slow, but so is my machine.
