Actually you are right. It is not the dictionaries. I did a parallel install
of LO and run it 3 times with all dictionaries and 3 times only with
the English dictionary. The load time was consistently 29 seconds (a little

Now the interesting part is that I got a dev build from the same day 
( which I know it's not the same code but I believe that is not what
is making the difference) and the load time was repeatedly 4 seconds!!!

I will investigate some more as time allows ;)
