endless startup with 1.2

since I upgraded to ver. 1.2., it takes DT several minutes to open my default database, which is just about 90 MB in size.
I work on a new macBook with 2 Gb RAM. I already performed all the possible steps of database maintenance in the utilites menu.
what else can I do?


Try to deactivate the ‘Check for Updates’ in the preferences. Does that make a difference? If yes, you’re probably network problems are causing the long delay.
