I received suggestions, private and public, from several members of Seesat.
I looked into all the suggestions and made some changes.
  I don't know which specific items helped, but the program now starts 
in 5 seconds instead of 5 minutes!

Thank you very much to all who wrote to me. You made a big difference.
