Some other suggestions:
1. try running Python with the -v option is seeing if there is any
obvious pause between imports, any imports of uncompiled modules or
any importing of seemingly unnecessary modules
2. check your sys.path for references to potentially slow file systems
e.g. network drives
What version of Python are you using?
