I understand why it happens. And three seconds are not the problem.

It is just a bit confusing to activate the shortcut and for 3 seconds
nothing seems to happen. First time I double-clicked again because I
though it wasn't working at all. Obviously a bit later two terminal
showed up. If mintty would should up empty and "wait" those three
seconds before something happens it is more clear it just takes some
startup time. But maybe that is more a mintty problem.
