Thanks to all who replied.
I am using no anti-virus software, and it's a pretty basic Win XP SP1
I have a feeling that, aside from the intial startup delay, it might be due
to the fact that the stacks I'm running open other stacks across a local
network. There's always a bit of a delay in normal function there; perhaps
some interior Rev-IDE scripts bog down.
Also, I opened a copy of a stack previously opened from across the network;
and I forgot that Rev does not necessarily release resources and settings
when a stack is closed. Maybe it got something confused....
In any case, I was able to get the work I needed done eventually. In
general, I find the Rev environment to be quicker and more responsive when
run on Mac OS X, so I do most of my work there, and then do a bit of
tweaking using the Windows editor afterwards. I can't really explain the
perceived difference; the computers used are a 1.3 mHz Mac and a 2 mHz Dell.
Maybe the memory? The Mac has 768 MB and the Dell 512 MB. Is 512 MB
