I believe that if you search for and use the latest windows executable (
3.9.2 is the version I'm using, although there appear to be 3.10.x versions
for windows available as well), then it will start very quickly by just
double clicking squeak.exe, and that the reason is very similar to what you
have written.  It was just fixed in either 3.9.1 or 3.9.2 (after being
'broken' for a very long time).

These are available at: http://www.squeakvm.org/win32/ .
