I recall the bug was fixed to where it took 2 or 3 minutes for my game to load 
maps, but maybe it is back.

I installed the game first, then the ECE followed by the latest patch, then 
CBP1.  I have not installed the CBP2 yet.  Perhaps I just have cheap hardware 
or not enough memory.  I have 256MB RAM and I am running the game in KDE with 
all apps closed.  My video card uses the Nvidia drivers and has 128MB of 
memory.  I have a 550MB swap partition and my machine has Intel Pentium4.
It's probably time to buy a new machine though this one is only 3 yrs old.  It 
came with a Debian derivative installed and was built by Microtel.
