[PD] linux - faster load first time

When I run pd the first time it takes a while to load, the second time 
it's much faster. I use a bash script to load my session (ardour, muse, 
pd + more) so if pd isn't running before muse, muse can't connect it's 
midi outs to pd's midi in.

I assume the load time is a matter of loading a binary, that's cached 
the second time. If so, where's the big binary? I tried running "cat 
/usr/local/bin/pd > /dev/null" in the beginning of my bash script, but 
that didn't seem to work.

If the above is a blind alley, whe could be done to speed up pd loadtime 
the first time?

NB: pd is version 0.40.3, and I'm running debian/linux...

peace, love & harmony
