well, start with "pd -verbose -stderr" to see where it spends the time.
sidenote: this might make loading even slower (*if* it is related to
finding libraries/abstractions), but you might laern something about the

general advice on search paths:
- only add a minimum of global search paths (either via "-path" flag to
the Preferences->Path dialog)
- use (abstraction local) [declare] statements instead.
- add paths to compiled libraries *after* paths to abstractions.
(compiled libraries are only searched once: as soone as they are found
they are loaded into RAM; otoh, abstractions are searched for each
instantiation; so you want to make sure to find abstractions as soon as

oh, and i'm not entirely sure whether your patch eventually opens
successfully or not.
