Check to make sure that "check for updates on startup" is not checked. You can also change this in SBAdmin.INI. The delay is probably your server trying to call home the internet to check SafeBoot/McAfee for new software, which would normally be blocked by firewall/proxy. I would include this setting for all workstations with the console as well, so they don't try to get to a higher version than the server.
