Hmm, that's a good point..  The reason this change got made was
because it was visually unappealing to have the window show up
before it's fully drawn.  It winds up resizing itself multiple
times and then relocates itself.  So the idea was to delay the
visibility until it's done, and the splash screen would show you
that something is happening.

I dont know how hard it would be to make it configurable.  You
can file an RFE in Bugzilla.
