I assume opening the Template Manager dialog has always been slow when 
you have lots of templates (which you normally do not have, unless you 
e.g. configure --enable-extra-template; so this might just have never 
gotten much attention).

I filed that issue because the re-worked start center originally 
instantiated the template data (which is what takes such a long time) 
always, even if you did not open the Template Manager.  (That is, 
displaying the start center was always unacceptably slow if you have 
lots of templates.)  That bug has since been fixed (the template data is 
now only instantiated on demand when opening the Template Manager 
dialog, when you click on the start center "Templates" button or choose 
"File - New - Templates"), but it may be OK to re-use that issue to 
track that opening the Template Manager dialog can be slow.
