Emacs, very slow startup...

Since I upgraded from Hoary to Breezy, I always have to wait several 
seconds until Emacs shows the file I want to open. With Hoary, the delay 
was rather shorter.

More precisely, the Emacs window pops up immediately, but just with menu 
and scrollbar.

After about five second, the window is resized (because I chose a font 
size different from the default), but it still remains empty (I mean, 
completely empty, just a white background, even no cursor).

After five more seconds, the file is finally showed.

What's happening?

Best regards.
