Slow Starting..

Been using Freeradius for years..

Quad core Xeon server
New Server setup  UBUNTU 8.04
Mysql 5.0.51
Running newest version of freeradius
Have dual mysql databases running .. One has all the user data and the other
gets all the accounting.

The server takes about 20-30 seconds to start.. Where on the previous
servers old P3 500mhz it took only
2-3 seconds..

It works and responds perfectly fine.. But just takes a while to finish
reading the configs..

Running debugging  it loads. To the point where it says
main: debug_level = 0
read_config_files:  reading dictionary
read_config_files:  reading naslist
Using deprecated naslist file.  Support for this will go away soon.
read_config_files:  reading clients
---------------------------end Cut------------------------------------

Then after about 30 seconds blasts out the rest of the normal load..
Attaching to all the databases etc..etc...

Anyone have any Ideas what this may be waiting around for?
