My environment:
Gnome 2.20
CPU-Speed 1,8GHz (Thinkpad T43)
RAM 1024MB

If I quit Evolution and restart it immediately the startup time is the same (about one minute).

What kind of disks are you running?  It might be related to your bus
speed and seek times.

In the Thinkpad T43 I have a Fujitsu 40GB PATA harddisk with 5400 rpm on
DMA100 and 8MB cache. All other programs do not show this. OpenOffice
needs only 10 seconds (!!!) for startup without quickstarter.

Do you have any way to profile evo, like strace, to see what it's doing?

I will use truss (strace is unknown in FreeBSD). Should I send you the

I'm not alone with that problem. Look here, it is in german language:

I am not familiar with FreeBSD - that's one brand of Unix I've never
used.  I was thinking (hoping?) that someone here other than myself
might be able to make sense of it, or perhaps even you.

I took a look at the German report, but my German is way too limited
to make much out of it other than the 1 minute to start part.

Is it possible that your file system is extremely fragmented and could
that be a part of it?

I only use Evo at home on my primary desktop box and here at work,
both on CentOS (5.2 at the moment) and I've never seen this problem.
I would expect a slower startup on a portable, but a minute does seem
kind of extreme, esp. if OOo starts that fast (mine takes about that,
maybe a little less).

Good luck!  Sorry I couldn't be more help.
