"Initializing: Scanning VST3 Plugins"

Upgrading from 8.5 to 9, this message is now where my startup gets delayed for quite a while. Then it starts, no problem messages, all plugins available…

Anybody else experience this?

Should I suspect any of my very many VST3 plugins?

I’ve noticed that since I bought a few recent Waves plugs. The VST3 part used to be almost instantaneous.
