On my Pentium 200 with 96meg ram it took 40 seconds the first time I
loaded to display a window, and that included taking over the desktop
display.  The second time, with the desktop display already loaded it
took 20 seconds.  Both times it took a further 20 seconds to completely
load so if you've already started it when starting gnome that might go a
ways torwards explaining the discrepancy.  
In any case it's Nautilus's thorough unusefulness as a filemanager and
clunky display that stops me from using it.  Gmc's behaviour with
symlinks makes it similiarly unattractive to me and I currently use the
X Wincommander file manager.  It's minimalist and does everything I
need.  Using it gives you the impression it's been designed and written
by someone that's actually going to use it every day rather than a team
of overexcited graphics designers.
