I have not stopped time and have done something else while the Creator was 
loading. But at least 15 Minutes, and when switching the session it took also 
about 15 minutes until my breakpoint got hit (or if I didn't debug would be 
responsive again).

Yeah I think that would help a lot, at least for the start up because I could 
see it was always loading DLLs.
