To isolate the problem, I will first profile the initialization
functions of the GNOME libraries, as pointed out by Sridhar. I will use
the tools mentioned by Havoc and some hackery. This will come first
because it seems to be easier (for me) than profiling dynamic linking. 

Then, depending on the results, we can dive deeply into dynamic linking,
hopefully with help from Soeren, who seems to grok this stuff. :) 

As soon as I get any results, I will post them here. Thank you very much
for the tips.
