I just thought, what is the difference in system configurations? IIRC,
emacs is ummm.... "resource intensive". Is memory sufficient? Do you
have sufficient swap allocated *and* activated (swapon -s). Those are
the only two things that jump to my mind. What does free or top show
before and during start up of emacs?
