No, it's that I click the icon to run iTerm2 but it takes 8 seconds for the first terminal to appear. As soon as it appears, all my good zsh config loads very quickly and the shell auditing script can report that nothing shell-related was slow.
I just noticed that the moment I run iTerm2, its menus populate to the Mac menubar in an instant, and the menus are also immediately able to give a slight cosmetic response to mouse clicks, but no menu items are available to drop-down until the exact moment that the first terminal appears, 8 seconds later: then everything comes alive.
It looks to me that the delay happens between menubar-loading and drawing first terminal, and I can't see into that time to debug.
