That, by itself, doesn't explain it unless there's something you're not
saying. If you run init routines in a preOpenStack handler, then I
think it's waiting until they are done to show the splash window.
If that's the case, move the init routines into an openStack handler of
the splash. That way the splash window shows _first_, and _then_ your
init routines run, which is what you want.
