I have noticed that when compiling or rather typesetting with XeLaTeX, I experience very different compilation times on different Operating Systems.
When I typeset on Windows, the compilation process seems to “hang” for a short while (around 10 seconds or so), especially after
eu1lmr.fd, i. e. this is the last line in the console for this time and nothing seems to happen. Then the process goes back to “normal speed” where the lines are rushing up quickly.
On Mac OS, I can compile just fine and the lines are running up smoothly and there is no such “interruption” of the typesetting process.
I am using TeXworks on Windows 7 and TeXShop and TeXworks on Mac OS X 10.7. I have TeXLive 2011 on a Ubuntu 11.10 server with

Thank you in advance for any information you are able to provide.
