Running winecfg seems to load Wine libraries or whatever, and then the vst loading in Reaper doesn't time out but vst loading will time out without first running winecfg or something that loads Wine.

I have to prime the Wine pump, so to speak.

More modern systems would not get the Wine loading time problem.

When I use my more modern quad core I don't have to do it.
Not that I know of. Never noticed a slowdown the first time I run wine. What I mean is that whenever you have updated the wine binary (new version or change to/from wine-staging), there will be a delay while starting wine for the first time in a specific index. Sometimes it even prompts you to update wine-gecko or mono in the wine prefix.
Reaper for Linux Documentation (WIP). Software: Archlinux/KDE, Fabfilter FX, Komplete 8, Nebula, Schwa/Stillwell, T-racks Max/Amplitube/SVX, etc. Gear: i7-2600k/4700HQ/16GB, RME Multiface/Babyface, Behringer X32, Genelec 8040,etc. :)
