slow startup after upgrade

Good work -- at least in my environment ;-)

20150225 DLL:
mkgroup 0.63s
mkpasswd 0.289s

compared to

20150220 DLL:
mkgroup 45.8s
mkpasswd: 4572.7s

Output is
 mkgroup: 53kb, 681 lines
 mkpasswd: 132kb, 1081 lines.

And the output *is* the same :-)

Cool!  Thanks for your feedback.
