Since I do some graphic work, I have more than 1000 TrueType fonts installed on
my machine. This causes a few seconds lasting slowdown everytime when I open the
Compose window in HTML mode, which is quite incomfortable. Other applications
(, The Gimp) does not have any problem.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install many fonts in the system
2. Open Compose window
3. Wait...

Actual Results:  
The window appeared in about 10 seconds (Duron 1300 MHz, 256 MB RAM)

Expected Results:  
The windows should appear with no lag (or a much smaller one)
