Well, the problem is "almost" resolved. There's code in cvs head that
eliminates the high overhead in all situations but the very first
register open.  This code needs to be tested a bit more, and then
back-ported to gnucash-1.8.  Next, we'd need a new relese, a 1.8.10
and then you'd have to wait for your distro to build a binary package
for 1.8.10 ...  So, although fixed, it could be a long time before 
you see the fix on your computer ...
