I ran an strace at the point when things were running quickly and I've now run one now that it's slow. I compared the two the best that I could (it's a huge file) and didn't find a huge difference except for the fact that it's loading some wxGtk related libs in the newer one (since I've installed python-wgtk2.6 since doing the fresh install). I tried uninstalling the wx-related stuff but still no change.

I've since downloaded a few other packages. I'm not 100% sure what's gtk related and what's not. But Audacity is loading in about 3 seconds. Xmms launches in about 2 seconds and the python IDLE editor launches in about 1 second. I'm assuming these are not GTK2 apps. These launch times are about 3 times quicker than when I launch Gedit, GCalctool or the Terminal in Ubuntu.
