[Newbies] Squeak slows to start up in Windows

I think the reason is something like that Squeaks queries Windows to now if
an image is available in its directory, if there are more than one it opens
a file chooser.
If you create a shortcut and within you state the appropriate image as a
parameter the time to start-up is greatly reduced.
