I'll be interested to learn more about resolution of the problems you've encountered. Perhaps it's worth pointing out my recent experience. I'm running a WinXP/Mathematica 6.0.2 notebook with a large Manipulate statement (large=lots of internal calcs & controls). The computer was disconnected from the network, so any influence of the idiosyncratic behavior of antivirus server pings, et cet was eliminated. I've tried starting this notebook several times from a cold-boot of the computer, invocation of Mathematica, with an immediate "Evaluate Initialization Cells" (on which my Manipulate code functions depend). In all these trials, the time for the resulting Manipulate output panel to be built and ready varied from a handful of seconds to a few minutes! Go figure! I do notice (pointed out already by others?) that Manipulate is evidently implemented using Java. I can watch the Win Task Manager, where "javaw" is at first the CPU hog, followed alternately (as expected) by the frontend and the kernel. Maybe WRI will at some point replace such java implementation with native code? Just some hints and datapoints...
