Thanks, but this does not help. I have two theories:

* Gnome2 application are only in Gnome2 environments fast, and I do
  not run Gnome2... KDE has similar effects but after starting one
  KDE application, the other ones have reasonable startup-times
  (e.g. kghostview needs 10-15s on first start and then around 2s).

* 'strace -eopen ggv' shows that it opens all and every icon which it
  can find on the system. As these icons are on /usr/share which are on
  an NFS share, this can cause slowdowns. Nevertheless, this is a broken
  behavior as only a small subset of the icons will be used by gedit
  finally.

I will follow rawhide development but do not have time to try this now.
