      My copy of MacVim (snapshot 70) on 10.6.8 takes a full ten seconds to
      launch from cold (so does console Vim too). Even launching console Vim
      with no plugins & no vimrc, it takes three seconds.

      On Linux, Ubuntu 13.04 & SL 6.4 launch instantaneously whereas all the
      rest take between two to three seconds.

      All machines have the same plugins & same vimrc.
