Whenever I log in to a server with AntiTCC installed, there's usually
quite a bit of "jerkiness" early on as textures (and so forth) are
verified.  If you pull up a console after joining a game, is it possible
that AntiTCC (or some other anti-cheat script) is being run, and that
might account for the initial slowness?

Also, if you reduce the sound quality or graphics quality, do you notice
an improvement in initial response?

(FYI, on servers that don't run AntiTCC, I usually don't notice a
serious impact to framerate after loading a map.)
