Actually, Yelp has recieved much love in this cycle (just look at the
changelogs from 2.12 onward if you don't believe me ;) ). Some of it
was performance work. Check out loading of docbook manuals. Startup is
still slow, but thats got a lot to do with libgnome / bonobo /
scrollkeeper / mozilla overhead (which we have on the target list for
2.16. Or at least I do ;) ).

Ye, that should be fixed as of todays update. It was an attempt to make
Yelp accessible again, but something seems broken in atk or bonobo 
and so the workaround was removed.
