I used to get this delay when the current window manager wasn't
configured at all.  ie. the gconf key

Try setting that key to, say, /usr/bin/sawfish or /usr/bin/metacity and
see if you still get the delay.

Elsewhere, I just helped a friend out on this too.  Shouldn't the
default Debian GNOME 2 install somehow set this key to
/usr/bin/x-window-manager so update-alternatives can handle this?
