That is happening for me too.

I had the UT2004 demo, and the loading time was really fast, I was 
always the first to load the map and be on the serv.

But now I have the full version, with the lastest path, and the maps 
take at least 1 minute to load.

I have Debian, 512 RAM, Athlon XP 1500 MHZ, Nvidia FX5200, KDE, Kernel

See Ya.
