I went to use transmission last night, but nothing appeared to happen when I started it. After a poke around, I could see the process transmission-gtk started running straight away, and then the window finally appeared after about 10 minutes or so. I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary in terms of CPU or memory usage during those ten minutes, and I can reproduce this on both Ubuntu and Xubuntu 12.04 on the same machine (both clean, separate installs). THat was the first time I have tried to run transmission on both, subsequent attempts to run it after restarting the computer had the same result.
A quick search of Google and the forums did not turn anything up. Just wondering if anyone else has come across this, or if it is well known?
The system I am using is:
Pentium 4 HT 3ghz
