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.
