I don't use the define, it should log to console, not dialog....

But normally on my system the time is not noticeable (100 ms, tops 150 ?)

Now I just experienced it taking about 3 or 4 seconds.
win 32 vista

The system was particular busy (another fpc (different exe / different 
version) was running).
- using 1 of 2 cpu => but the other was idle, so enough cpu power
- still 1Gb of RAM free
- but it would have prevented anything useful being in the OS disc cache 
because it accesses plenty of other files
Everything on my system react nice and fine, except that tab ("other") 
took a few seconds
