I dug a bit deeper into the cachegrind results with tdecachegrind and
spotted an obscure codepath that was responsible for a significant
fraction of the startup instructions.  I have committed a patch for that
problem in GIT hash 30c5994; can you please rebuild TQt3 and see if the
slow startup time is resolved?  You don't have to rebuild tdelibs or
anything else, just TQt3.
